Who I Am  

A Little About Me

My interest in business was sparked after taking several business classes at The University of San Diego. I sought work experience through Marketing and Human Resources positions where I utilized my organizational and communications skills, as well as my proficiency in Excel, to set myself apart as an efficient intern. Today, I am passionate about advertising and marketing due to prior internship experiences. My 2019 summer internship at Co Collections introduced me to the marketing world and working at Sparrows in 2020 deepened my understanding of the importance of marketing, which is to create customer value and establish long term, profitable relationships. Currently, I am the Instagram lead for the USC Brain Tumor Center where I am working to share a serious topic in a social media-friendly way.

Interesting Factoid

I am a dual citizen & I studied abroad in Madrid!
