As a Digital Sales Representative I will be responsible for prospecting, outreaching, and setting meetings with new and current customers to see if NetApp can serve their storage needs."
How did your Busch School and Catholic University education help you find this career path?

The Busch School has one of the best up and coming Sales Programs in the United States. It provides endless opportunities for students, from competitions, to jobs, to internships. Without Professor Weber (Head of the Sales Program) and the Busch School I would not have identified my passion for sales and would not be in the position I am today."

Another was the Washington Nationals winging the World Series and being able to witness that in Washington D.C.
Another highlight was being part of a family that is the Catholic University Baseball Team."
