Brief Summary
My work experience illustrates a wide diversity of industries and settings that I have learned from and excelled in. As a Client Relationship Executive at BoardEx, I was challenged to leverage the relationships of my clients; it was my job to create effective solutions and strategies specific to the needs of my customers. Working on the Opportunity Assessment team at Huron Consulting Group, I developed the ability to sift through large quantities of client data, and efficiently evaluate trends and areas of opportunity. My current role demands a strong understanding of the influence of social media and the importance of creating brand awareness.

These experiences manifest in my ability to draw from right brain creativity and big picture thinking, as well as the left brain’s analytical and logical thought process. This dichotomy speaks directly to my majors at Bucknell University: philosophy and economics. I pride myself in being able to think outside the box, bring new perspectives to the table and solve problems.
