During my time as a Chambers College undergraduate, I was very involved in both
business and special interest organizations. I served as a Chambers Ambassador
for three years where I discovered my love for recruitment. I completed a research
project for Dean Reyes with the help of other Chambers Ambassadors in order to
identify needs and suggest new ideas to make the Chambers College even better
for our students. With the help of Dr. Suzanne Kitchen, I participated in two
case competitions— Peoples Bank in Marietta, Ohio and SHRM in Bridgeport, West
Virginia—that allowed me to improve upon my critical thinking and public speaking
skills. In 2019, I studied abroad in China with 15 other Chambers students, Dr.
Li Wang, and Dr. Mike Walsh that provided hands-on exposure to international
business relations. Most recently, I assisted Dr. Suzanne Kitchen as her service-learning
teaching assistant for MANG 480 Corporate Social Responsibility where we distributed
a grant of $10,000 to 8 area non-profit organizations.
Outside of the Chambers College, I was a member of “The Pride of West Virginia” Mountaineer Marching Band where I served as a woodwind rank leader and piccolo section leader. During my time in The Pride, I represented West Virginia University and our great state of West Virginia in numerous performances at home football games, bowl game trips, numerous high school exhibitions, many area festivals, and most notably the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Additionally, I served as treasurer and committee chair of the Kappa Lambda chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota, a music service fraternity.
After graduation, I will be entering into the Master of Science in Industrial Relations program at WVU where I will graduate in December 2021 and begin my career as a human resources professional.
