Hometown: Grand Rapids, Michigan
Favorite Experience: I had many impactful experiences at The University of Alabama, but one of my favorite experiences on campus was Design for America. I learned what productive teamwork could look like and how to be a more effective leader and communicator. I started to think about problem-solving in a new way and allowed myself to be more creative and innovative. I also grew from mistakes we made and grappled with intentions versus impact.
Future Plans: After graduation, I am going to be backpacking in Southeast Asia and taking a road trip to national parks in the U.S.. In August, I am going to start as an application developer at Vanguard in Malvern, PA in the rotational Technology Leadership Program.
