Senior Market Analyst

Mount Union helped teach me about time management between classes, social activities and part-time jobs. I also came in contact with great professors and staff who taught me about making good life choices.

Education

B.A. International Studies/French

I support primarily the marketing team with big data analysis. I manage our data infrastructure, as it pertains to secondary data, and I produce custom reports on market and product trends.

Great Opportunity

I came to Mount Union because I qualified for a substantial scholarship that they gave me.

Faculty Experts

I liked Dr. Michael Grossman because he was very knowledgeable about his field and cared greatly about his students.

Success After Graduation

After I finished school, I got a job as a project manager at Market Analytics International in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.

Internship

In the summer between my junior and senior year, I interned at Project Vote Smart in Montana. I found their brochures in The Office of Career Development.

Campus Organizations

I was a member of Model UN during my time at Mount Union.

Knowledge Seeker

Besides my bachelor’s degree, I also have earned a Master of Arts degree in politics from New York University and a Master of Science degree in Sociology from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

Learning Out of the Classroom

Mount Union helped teach me about time management between classes, social activities and part-time jobs. I also came in contact with great professors and staff who taught me about making good life choices.

Friends in All Places

When I travel, I put out a note on Facebook asking if any of my former classmates live in/around my destination.

Life To-Do List

Be happy. (sub-goals: Have a sustainable life-style. Be surrounded by friends).
