ABOUT ME

Thank you for visiting my e-portfolio!

I am originally from Oxford, Connecticut. I decided to come to Temple University in Philadelphia because of the opportunities that both the city itself and the MIS department at Temple have to offer. I am studying Management Information Systems as I am especially fascinated in the creative process behind how IT can fuel business operations.

In addition to my BBA, I am also pursuing a Minor in Spanish as I am passionate about speaking and understanding a language that is frequently disregarded in the business world. In the summer of 2018 I studied abroad in Oviedo, Spain where I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the culture and improve upon my ability to converse in the language.

My goals for the future are constantly fluctuating as I learn and discover new interests. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I realized this at a young age when I attempted to go door-to-door in my neighborhood selling rocks from my backyard. As I grew up, I discovered the significance of technology in the most successful businesses and this intrigued me. In the near future I want to have role of leading businesses to solutions by way of technology. Perhaps eventually this might include a company of my own.
