Year Graduated: 2011
Major at Michigan: Economics
Share the story of why you chose your major.
I knew that I wanted a major related to business, but I was also interested in the rounded education that the College of LS&A provided.
At Michigan, I spent most of my time outside the classroom…
With my fraternity, the Navarra Foundation, and intramural sports.
What story stands out to you in your first year on the job?
Things move quickly. Working for a growth company, there is a lot of movement and changing parts.
What’s next in your story? (next steps, future plans)
I plan on moving forward/up. By using the skills I’ve gained in my first year and a half, I believe I can take on a leadership role in the company.
What is one thing every student should have on their “career to-do” list?
Make a positive impact. Just as your parents would paraphrase... “Leave it better than how you found it.”
