Why Promotions?

Relevant skill set?

Writing, market research, media marketing, collaboration

Extracurricular activities?

-Cavalier Marching Band
-Marketing Chairman, Fourth-Year Trustees
-McIntire Ambassador

Career aspiration?

I want to work in consumer insights/strategy or in brand management. I really love finding what makes people tick and how various products can appeal to them!

Course recommendations?

-Greek Mythology (Ivana Petrovic)
-Introduction to Eastern Religious Traditions (Michael Allen)
