Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose Daniels because of the amazing resources that come with the program. In addition to the interesting coursework, the support I receive to prepare for a career after graduation is truly meaningful. You build networks and lifelong connections with your professors, mentors and your cohort members. I will feel more prepared to walk into the job market with the skills I learn from Daniels. 

Pre-grad school experience

Before coming to Daniels, I had various internship opportunities in the political arena. I worked on national and state campaigns as a digital intern. I also did some congressional work in Colorado’s District 6 and I worked extensively with policy makers in the Colorado State Capitol. 

Post-grad school goal

Though I am not sure what I want to do yet, I plan to utilize my degree to complement the skills I learned in undergrad. This would allow me to use all the skills I have learned over the past five years to benefit me in the long run. 


I enjoy taking photos, traveling and spending time with my dog! I am also extremely passionate about fashion, health and wellness.
