I am currently a First-Year student majoring in Management and Finance, with minors in Entrprenuership and Economics and self motivated maker and entrprenuerial thinker at Elon University. I am a resident on the ELONCH (pronounced e-launch) Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community floor, where students passionate about innovation live, partner together, and attend workshops, field trips, and networking events related to entrepreneurship. In addition, I am a member of the Elon Engineering Club and Treasurer of the Rocket Team division. Finally, I am leading a creative project designed to promote crosswalk safety on campus through Enactus, a national organization committed to helping others through entrepreneurial thought and action. With each endeavor I undertake, I am intentional about leading when necessary and stepping back when not, being involved, present, positive, and open to change.

In addition to my academic and extracurricular involvement, this past summer I started my own online business as a first step into e-commerce. Not only have I learned a lot about creating a successful online business, but also the technical skills needed to create and administer an e-commerce site, successful social media and affiliate marketing strategies for early stage companies, and creating value for, and providing great service to the customer.
