What did you want to be when you grew up (when you were little)? In high school? Now what do you want to be?
In high school I wanted to be an ophthalmologist, but then I took my first economics class and have been an econ nerd ever since! I don’t have a specific position in mind as of now, I just want to pursue an opportunity that will allow me to move somewhere new and work for a company with a great company culture! Down the line I would like to pursue a master’s degree and possibly a PhD.
Favorite Food: Potatoes of all kinds!
Seidman Supply Chain Management Association and IM Sports
Favorite event from and/or thing about DSP:
My favorite event was our 2018 Spring Formal. It was a day after my birthday, so it was a fun way to celebrate with all of the brothers! I also love attending Provincial Lead Conferences. I have made so many connections and friends from various chapters by attending those conferences!
Favorite thing about Grand Valley: Being close to Lake Michigan, there are many prime hammocking spots, and the various breweries in the surrounding area.
Why did you join DSP?
I joined DSP to gain a network of career driven peers. I also wanted to expand my professional network outside of Grand Valley. I have made so many wonderful connections and am extremely grateful for the lifelong friends I’ve made from being involved with DSP.
Why did you choose Grand Valley?
I chose Grand Valley because of its amazing location near the city of Grand Rapids and the beaches on Lake Michigan!
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
II want to have a career that makes me happy and helps me make a difference. I hope to escape the brutal Michigan winters and head back west. I also plan to have two dachshund puppies!
