Why did you choose Daniels?

Daniels offers flexibility within every program, and opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. I’m able to take electives that allow me to cater my individual experience within MS Marketing to my specific interests. I’m grateful for the internship opportunities during the quarter that provide students with transferrable knowledge and skills. I also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go to school so close to the mountains!

Previous Education

I graduated in 2020 from Penn State with a B.S. and Honors in Marketing, with a double minor in Economics and Spanish.

Pre-grad school experience

Before coming to Daniels, I worked for two years in Asset Management at JPMorgan in Manhattan.

Post-grad school goal

I’m currently enjoying my assistantship in the Consumer Insights & Business Innovation Center (CiBiC) and want to look at careers related to insights or analytics. I’d love to work in marketing and data visualization at a running-focused company.


I will always find time for running (and training for races!) despite how busy my schedule gets. I love hiking, skiing and reading. I’m a big foodie at heart and will never say no to trying a new restaurant.
