Bio: This will be my 8th semester in WIB. I was VP of Tech for a year before I was elected as president for 2022-2023. I love that wib provides so many resources to students and can be a great way for members to meet other females in Tippie and empower each other! I truly believe that what you put in is what you get out – if you are an active member, not afraid to put yourself out there, or come to events prepared with questions, you will excel in wib! Not set in stone yet but I hope to move to Phoenix and work in data!

Bio: “I’m currently in my 7th semester as a part of WIB, having been part of lean-in circles, as a member and a leader, since I joined. I have also been a part of the GalPal program for the past year. I’m so excited to improve and continue working on these internal programs as a part of the exec board! WIB has allowed me to be surrounded by a consistent group of supportive, like-minded women, and provided me ample opportunities for networking. When I’m not in class or attending WIB events, you’ll find me working one of my campus jobs, reading a book, or going for a run. Post graduation I have accepted a full time offer as a Risk & Compliance Consultant in Chicago!”
