Year: Junior

Major: Finance

Leadership positions and organizations that you are involved in:

  • VP of Business Development, Ohio University Student Equity Management Group (OUSEMG)
  • Director of Fundraising, Delta Sigma Pi
  • Fellow, Ohio Fellows Program

Biggest accomplishment as a student leader:

Successfully managing the recruiting process for OUSEMG, while simultaneously running the fundraising for DSP.

Best memory at OHIO:

My best memory at Ohio University was getting my first company bought in OUSEMG. It is so satisfying to see your hard work lead to $150,000 allocated into an idea that you developed.

Biggest quirk:

I love really lame jokes.

Your role model and why:

Cal Ripken Jr. because he exemplified excellence and consistency in his profession and demonstrated humility while doing it. I watched him play, day in and day out, while I was growing up, and want to emulate his consistent excellence in my own life.

What makes a leader?

A leader must be honest in everything that they do. I have found that people in leadership position have a hard time (myself included) in admitting something they do not know how to do. Being honest with yourself about your own strengths and weaknesses help establish meaningful connections with the people who you lead.
