MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY

Choosing Mount Union
The initial interest was sparked when I was being recruited to play football. But after visiting campus multiple times, I found many reasons to love Mount Union. The campus is beautiful, the faculty and staff were as friendly as could be, and the University had top-notch educational offerings.

The Mount Union Difference
I think that class size and environment are the biggest things that set Mount apart from other colleges. It was an awesome feeling to feel like more than just a number in class or to the professor. The professors always made themselves available and tried to build a relationship with you, as well. This is something that you just don’t see at other places you visit.

Favorite Professor
Choosing one is very difficult, as the entire Economics, Accounting & Business Admin Department played a huge role in my success at Mount. These professors were always available to provide assistance outside of the classroom or just to chat in general. I had two awesome advisors, Michael Kachilla and Xiaoshu Han, that helped me determine the best path for me.

Summer Internship
I had one internship, outside of my required practicum, at the University of Virginia’s Health System. I held an Administrative Intern position in the C-Suite working closely with the top executives daily. I will forever be grateful for that opportunity as I was able to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge in addition to working with very brilliant executives.

Campus Involvement
I was a member of the football team and spent a year with the investment team.

Beyond Mount Union
After Mount, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Northcentral University.

Career Preparation
I was a very busy student as I was double majoring and seeking a minor as well. With that being said, time management was very important during my time at Mount. This has helped my so far in my career as well. I always felt like I was being challenged in my education too. I am thankful for that to this day because I am still being challenged similarly in my job.

Extra-Curricular Influence
I think that being part of a team and around leadership has been essential in my career path. With the changing styles of management and leadership in the industry, it is imperative that a manager is a leader and teammate rather than a “boss” or “supervisor”.

The Liberal Arts Effect 
My education helped me to become a well-rounded student and employee. It was beneficial to learn about other things like philosophy and literature to pair with my degree-related courses.
