Tell us more about your current position.

I assist with business planning to expand current lines of business, and I assist with business planning for new markets and/or lines of business that our organization wants to pursue.

Any advice for students?

I would encourage students to engage and build relationships with professors, as well as Vaughan Institute staff and other Tippie College of Business staff. It’s worth the investment.

What was the greatest benefit of being a part of the Vaughan Institute and Gamma Iota Sigma?

Friendships were fostered with fellow students in the Vaughan Institute and GIS. In addition, the Vaughan Institute and GIS both allowed me to interact with industry professionals and develop my confidence in my ability to network.
