- Concentrations: Finance and Accounting
- Track: Global Commerce
Hi! My name is Emerson, and I am a fourth-year concentrating in Finance and Accounting, with a track in global commerce.
I am primarily involved in a volunteer-based tax filing service called CASH and the sorority Alpha Chi Omega. Outside involvements have certainly been a defining factor in helping me explore interests, impact the Charlottesville community, and meet a lot of different personalities at UVA!
In my free time, I love to explore the local food scene, take workout classes, read, and watch TV with my housemates. Food has always been an interest of mine, and in fact, it’s what stemmed my interest in business. Currently, my best friend and I are working on a gourmet trail mix venture.
My time at McIntire has pushed me to understand my weaknesses and leverage my strengths like never before. I know that I can speak for myself, and on behalf of my ICE group, when I say that the sense of ownership of, and pride in, the work we do throughout McIntire is unparalleled. This school constantly forces me to set new standards for myself and how I believe the classroom should look. Ask me about it!
