This will be my sixth semester in Women in Business, and I am so excited to serve as the President!

This will be my fourth semester in Women in Business and second semester as a member of the Executive Board. Becoming a member of WIB has really helped me find my place in Tippie: I love being surrounded by so many motivated and high-achieving women. As for involvement,  I am a member of the Senior Center Committee, a committee within WIB that is responsible for planning events with members of the Iowa City Senior Center. We have a lot of fun things in the works, so I encourage everyone to keep an eye out! I am also a member of Iowa’s auditioned undergraduate choir, University Choir. This will be my sixth semester in choir. Although I’m not a music major, I love being able to sing every day. Last summer, I interned at Aegon Asset Management in Cedar Rapids, and this upcoming summer I will be interning at Ernst and Young in Minneapolis. As you can see, I enjoy being involved in a variety of different activities and meeting new people! I am looking forward to another great semester!

Outside of WIB, I am a Global Ambassador in Tippie, a receptionist at State Farm, and a Sport Operations Assistant for the Athletic Department on campus. I also love to practice yoga, read, travel, and bike/hike my way around Iowa City. I am so excited to continue into the Spring semester as the VP of Internal Affairs. I absolutely love our Lean In Circle and Gal Pal programs, and they are going to be seeing some great improvements this semester. I will also be trying out another program to create study groups for our members. This semester is going to be great and I can’t wait!

Some of my favorite things to do outside of school is plan vacations (that may or may not happen), scuba dive, walk (not run), go lifting, visit my grandparents, and pet every dog I see.
