Hometown: Bethlehem, Connecticut

How has Dickinson prepared you for your future?

My experiences at Dickinson College, in tandem with the experiences that I had abroad at the University of Oxford, have prepared me for a career in the fast-paced, ever-changing world of consulting. At Dickinson, I learned how to develop as a holistic learner, and my double major in international business & management and English enabled me to simultaneously become a better qualitative and quantitative thinker, while also giving me the chance to develop my love of the Spanish language. Overall, my classes were usually challenging and rewarding, and I have truly been so fortunate to learn from such passionate and intelligent professors and to have been given the independence to grow as a learner and an individual.

Internship Experience

Summer 2017, I interned with Enterprise Knowledge, LLC in Arlington, Virginia. As an intern, I had the opportunity to work with members of the EK team to further develop and refine the company's brand strategy, produced marketing videos, edited/enhanced documents and reports, worked with marketing programs such as Canva to design layouts and blog graphics, developed/expanded recruitment strategies, enhanced the company's social media presence, engaged in activities related to taxonomy and change management, and helped to formulate the company's newsletters. I was fortunate enough to receive a job offer at the end of the summer, which I have accepted.

What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?

I could not be more excited to start my career at EK, as I feel it enables me to combine my English and international business & management majors rather seamlessly. The work culture is wonderful, and the CEO, Zach Wahl '98 really loved his experience at Dickinson, which is so amazing to see. EK offers great opportunities for advancement, so I would love to be promoted within the next year or so and enter into the higher ranks of the company. My goal in the next few years is to determine whether I want to continue to pursue a career in consulting or if I want to go on to graduate school to obtain my MBA or to study law. I am also considering trying to return back to the University of Oxford in the next couple of years for graduate school depending on what field/subjects I end up wanting to study.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

My first year interest group, my first year seminar and my first year hall gave me some of the best friends I could have ever asked for! They were and still are a big part of why I love Dickinson College so much and have had such wonderful experiences here. Everything that we have done together over the last four years has been so memorable, from snowball fights on the quads to nightly dinners in the cafeteria. They are truly an amazing group of people. In addition, the all college formal was such a fun event all four years, and I am so glad that it has become more popular! Lastly, my experience at the University of Oxford were absolutely incredible. I had never been abroad before, and in the course of one year, I made such incredible friendships and became a significantly better writer and free thinker. I am so grateful for everything that Dickinson has done for me over the last four years.
