What is the most inter­est­ing thing you have done or are plan­ning to do to explore or gain expe­ri­ence in your career field?

I have been able to trav­el to Chica­go twice to meet with var­i­ous adver­tis­ing agen­cies and attend net­work­ing events with Uni­ver­si­ty of Iowa alum­ni. I was able to go on these trips through the Amer­i­can Adver­tis­ing Fed­er­a­tion (AAF). I have been a mem­ber of AAF for two years and have served on the exec­u­tive board in two posi­tions, direc­tor of pub­lic rela­tions and direc­tor of social media. 

What does being a Bright Schol­ar mean to you?

The first time I heard Lois Bright’s quote, We worked hard, saved care­ful­ly, invest­ed wise­ly and gave back when we could,” was at my schol­ar­ship award din­ner. Ever since, I’ve been try­ing to incor­po­rate that mot­to into my dai­ly life. I am grate­ful for the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tin­ue my edu­ca­tion and be able to grad­u­ate debt free. Because I was for­tu­nate enough to be giv­en this amaz­ing schol­ar­ship, I am dri­ven to work hard to earn my degree, and I am able to give more of my time, ener­gy, and resources to help make this world a bet­ter place.

What has been your biggest accom­plish­ment so far?

My biggest accom­plish­ment has been my work with­in the fra­ter­ni­ty and soror­i­ty com­mu­ni­ty. I’ve had oppor­tu­ni­ties to trav­el to Indi­ana and Nebras­ka, and I’ve got­ten to work with oth­er lead­ers from all over the coun­try. This past year, I was award­ed the Fra­ter­ni­ty & Soror­i­ty Life Indi­vid­ual Sis­ter­hood Award. I also cur­rent­ly serve on the Pan­hel­lenic Exec­u­tive Board as vice pres­i­dent of pub­lic rela­tions and marketing. 

What’s a fun fact we should know about you?

I have a pet rab­bit named Mulan (MuMu).
