Personal Summary

I am an outgoing and adventurous female who understands the value of cultivating and fostering long-lasting relationships. My experiences in the non-profit and for-profit worlds, both professionally and personally, have taught me to steer a business to success through proper financial planning, excellent customer service, and successful account management. While I consider myself a lifelong learner, I anticipate finishing my BS in Marketing Management the summer of 2020, and am looking to secure a position to use and further develop my skills and knowledge in the non-profit sector.
