I was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, while also serving as the youngest appointed member of the Tutor/Mentor program at the University of Saint Thomas all four years of my attendance. (2002-2006)
I currently serve on the boards of two non-profit organizations, and have for at least 3 years now: OC Ministries and World Beat Connection.
I studied abroad three times during college: two January-terms in Berlin, Germany and also the Fall Semester 2005 for the London Business Semester.
Prior to, and during, college I was the general manager at Glorious Beans Cafe in the first five years the Albertville Outlet Mall was open. I received this position at the age of 16 and maintained my commitment to this role until I was 21 years of age.
Throughout college I worked part time as a Quality Control laboratory assistant for a global industrial fabrication manufacturer, which taught me to have an acute attention to detail.
After college I was awarded a paid internship at Augeo Affinity Marketing, where I contributed new project management processes to my senior marketing leadership, as well as detailed data entry.
The remainder of my experience is detailed on my resume. Please reach out with any questions!
