WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

Denver has been my home for the last three years, and it was my goal to get into the best school with the best program in the area. Daniels happened to be that and so much more.

 

PREVIOUS EDUCATION

Bachelor of Science in Zoology, North Dakota State University

 

PRE-GRAD SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

Prior to attending Daniels, I worked in the restaurant industry as a server. I loved working with both the guests and my team, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to make a career out of it. I decided the business professional career path would provide the best way for me to build a career around my personal strengths and passions.

 

POST GRAD SCHOOL GOAL

My program has helped me develop a solid foundation of values. As of right now, I’m hoping to enter the outdoor retail industry and eventually shift into research and development management or general project management. I’d love to earn certifications down the road, such as the Project Management Professional Certification.

 

HOBBIES

I spend a lot of time outside with my dog. You can find us running around Denver or hiking/snowshoeing in the mountains. I also love reading and listening to podcasts, such as My Favorite Murder, This American Life, and Snap Judgement. As former service industry workers, my boyfriend and I love exploring new restaurants and breweries around the Denver Metro Area as well.
