Hometown: Delray Beach, FL

Major(s)/Minor(s)/Combined Degree: I graduated with my BSBA in Information Systems Summer 2020 with a minor in Economics. Currently completing my combined degree in MSISOM and will graduate in Spring 2020.

My Top 5 Strengths are: Achiever, Learner, Futuristic, Positivity, Adaptability

I love being an HPA because I can help students achieve their academic goals and encourage them to get involved in activities that align with their interests.

My advice to a First-Year Business Gator is to put yourself out there! There is a lot of adjusting in your first year as a college student, but Heavener provides so many outlets for students to get involved and integrate themselves in the Heavener community. Everyone can find their place in Heavener, although it might not happen overnight, continuing to put yourself out there will enhance your Heavener experience.
