Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite Saint Mary's memories are playing the first ever home women's water polo tournament at the Joseph R. Alioto Recreation Center, trying my hand at teaching during the Elementary Field Experience Jan Term in 2020, studying abroad in Florence, Italy during fall 2019, and serving as the Project Coordinator for my Applied Marketing Research course during my last semester.

My Next Chapter

After graduating early in December 2020, I began working on a fashion start-up which I co-founded. Simultaneously, I took on a marketing role at a start up called RightOnTrek. I have now accepted a full-time position as a Marketing Associate at RightOnTrek beginning in June 2021, and will continue to work on my own company in my role as Chief Marketing Officer.
