WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

I enjoy the smaller class sizes and opportunities that Daniels provides its students. The staff works hard to connect students to experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom. Living in Denver, a current finance hot-spot, also opens doors to careers and internships.

 

PREVIOUS EDUCATION

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration—Finance and Business Analytics, University of Denver

 

PRE-GRAD SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

I went straight from my undergrad into the graduate program, because I had worked in the financial industry and saw how the program could help further develop skills for my future career. During the past few years, I’ve interned in compliance (fraud and AML), internal audit, corporate insurance, and financial planning & analysis at CoBank. In addition, I’ve interned at a private investment advisory firm. Currently, I work in enterprise risk management at CoBank.

 

POST GRAD SCHOOL GOAL

With my MSAQF, I hope to continue to help solve financial problems. This program is helping me realize the areas I enjoy most about finance. Ideally, I’ll start my career in one of those areas and be able to apply new acumen to financial problem solving.

 

HOBBIES

I love visiting my family’s farm when I need a break from Denver city-life, spending time with my dog, and exploring Colorado’s gorgeous mountains with friends!
