About Me:

I am currently a senior marketing major at Northern Illinois University, located in Dekalb, IL. To go along with my bachelor's in marketing, I am pursing my interests in technology by completing my digital marketing certification as well. In addition to my studies I have worked part-time through school along with partaking in school organizations, such as being a member of Delta Chi fraternity. After graduation in May 2021, I hope to land a full-time job in my area of study.

Skills and Achievements

Dean's List

I was accepted to the Dean's List for having a semester GPA equating to 3.75+ and was a full time student in Fall 2020. A huge personal achievement considering the transition to online learning as well as working on my development at Target.

Greek Life

During my active membership of the Delta Chia Fraternity, I worked in several different roles to help me become a better leader. As social chair, I planned events, accepted payments, created guest lists, and made sure all events ran smoothly. In addition, by managing the fraternity's Instagram page, I was able to improve my digital marketing skills in a hands-on fashion.

Volunteer Work

To understand what is takes to be a great leader, I believe it is important to put yourself in another person's shoes. Due to this, I believe it's extremely important to give back to the community. I make regular donations of goods as well as my time to my local food pantry and animal shelters.
