Where are you from?

Holmdel, New Jersey.

What made you choose your major?

I choose marketing as my major because I have always been interested in consumer behavior and understanding through a business perspective why we make the choices that we do. I chose global business as my minor because it is important to understand other cultures and economies around the world.

What type of professional experience have you had so far?

I interned abroad after sophomore year in Barcelona for Emagister, an online education company where I worked with the marketing coordinator. After my junior year, I was a worldwide sales intern in Boston for Cisco Systems and was offered a full time position with them through the Cisco Sales Associate Program in RTP, North Carolina. I accepted the full time prior to the start of my senior year.

How have you been involved on campus so far?

I have been a part of the Eller Professional Sales club since my first year and have held multiple executive board positions.

Have you held any positions?

This is my second year as president of the Eller Professional Sales Club.

What has your involvement and professional experience taught you?

From the club and work experience, I have learned the importance of professionalism, how to adapt to different cultures, and become a better leader.

What is your plan for the rest of college?

My plan for the rest of college is to enjoy my senior year. I am looking forward to learning more from my classes that are left. I am also training for the first ever Invitational Sales Competition held in the Eller PDC this December.

What are your plans for after graduation?

After I graduate I have two months before I start my full-time job with Cisco, and I hope to spend that time traveling internationally.
