Background

I am from Hazleton, PA and went to Hazleton Area High School. I grew up in an area labelled rural by UPS and FedEx, where you could run in the middle of the street with no fear of cars. I joined my elementary school’s concert band on flute in 5th grade. Since then, I have participated in marching band, jazz band, brass ensemble, and other concert bands on flute, piccolo, trumpet, trombone, mellophone, french horn, and oboe.  (I have always been ready to fill in where there is a need).

I received my first computer when I was 7. I loved the possibilities it presented and the opportunities it connected me to. Once you added internet, anything seemed possible on a computer. It feels right that I am now in college learning about how these wonders work.

Goals

I would like to work in Philadelphia in a position where I can use creativity and logic in equal parts. I would love to work at either a marketing agency, or for a brand directly. I am currently considering getting my Master’s in Digital Marketing. I would like to answer marketing questions through data, and work with a socially conscious company.
