One Sentence About Me  

I try my hardest to never leave anyone's day worse than I found it.

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I grew up in a small town in central Jersey and currently am a junior at Seton Hall University in North Jersey, so I have yet to leave the state. Growing up in a small town and now attending a small University, I have learned a very important lesson: People matter. Leadership is not necessarily about what people can do for you, but instead what you can do for them. From my involvement in organizations and clubs in high school, I began to develop my leadership competencies in communication, time management, conflict resolution, delegation, team building, and ultimately found my love for business and leading people. At Seton Hall University, I have continued to develop my leadership competencies through being a member of The Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development as well as taking on leadership positions in a variety of organizations (of which you can see below in my profile). Through these roles, I use my people first philosophy to create cultures that focus on member development and servant leadership. Professionally, along with promoting this new frontier of leadership, I plan to pioneer innovative changes within the accounting industry through my double concentration in Accounting and Information Technology Management. Outside of my academics and extracurriculars, I enjoy writing free verse poetry, learning new songs on my guitar, and trying out new mac and cheese recipes in search of the perfect one.

Interesting Factoid

In sixth grade, I was hit by a car (and I refused to not miss more than one day of school).
