I'm a junior, Advanced Marketing Analytics major.

I'm also a member of a business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, where I held the position of VP of Alumni Relations. I've also worked at The Vidette for 3 years as an Account Executive, Senior Account Executive, and now as the Marketing Manager. I've gained professional experience as a marketing intern at Progressive Impressions International (PII) and I just finished my summer internship this past summer at Information Resources, Inc. (IRi) as a Media Product Development Intern where I was leveraging big data to extract actionable insights for major CPG and retail clients. I was also selected as one of the students to pilot one of Google's new student programs with Illinois State University where I work with one of Google's nonprofit partner and help them improve their digital marketing.
"Doing whatever is necessary to accomplish a task" is a mindset that I hold dear to me, because of my military experience. I am currently serving in the Army National Guard (similar to Army Reserves).
