Regarding her A&S education she says, “My A&S career taught me many valuable lessons both inside and outside the classroom. I greatly enjoyed the numerous internships I had while earning my Bachelors of Science Degree, and I learned how to implement my classroom lessons into my everyday work life. I also learned how to identify and handle different communication styles in a workplace setting, and about myself as a communicator and as a leader. The professors really allow you to flourish as a student, while encouraging you to get involved on campus and in the community.”
