Relevant skill set

Leadership and management, Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, social media, copywriting, search engine optimization

Extracurricular activities

UVA Football Recruiting, Alpha Kappa Psi professional business fraternity, Jefferson Startup Network

Career aspiration

I’d love to continue doing marketing or branding within the nonprofit sector before eventually getting an MBA.
