Graduation Year: 2013
Hometown: Dayton, OH
I came to Saint Francis as an honor student and initially majored in International Business/Spanish and later decided to double major by adding Accounting. I had to master the concept of time management as I was also a member of the varsity women’s basketball team as well as SAAC and the Student Advisory Board for the School of Business. I graduated with departmental honors for my thesis on how food choice/obesity is affected by socioeconomics. I am currently employed as a loan processor with New Day USA, a national mortgage company located near Baltimore, MD.
I came into Saint Francis expecting to receive a good education, Bachelor’s Degree in a business field, and play 4 years of Division I basketball; but I left with so much more. I received two Bachelor’s Degrees in International Business/Spanish and Accounting as well as winning two championship rings with the Red Flash among other things, but what I love most about my memories at Saint Francis is the community atmosphere you feel everywhere you go. The professors at SFU deeply care about their students and take pride in motivating and inspiring them to achieve every day. I can say I am still in touch with many of my professors because I wouldn’t be enjoying the career and life I have without their preparation and support throughout my college career. My advice to students still enjoying the journey would be to take advantage of every opportunity to step out of your comfort zone.
