Hometown: Northern Kentucky (greater Cincinnati area)

Concentrations: Management and Information Technology

Second major: B.A. in Global Development Studies

About me:

Hi! My name is Margot. I’m a third-year double-majoring in Commerce and Global Development. I’m really passionate about the nexus between business and social impact and ultimately want to end up doing work in the social sector space. Within the Comm School, I’m concentrating in Management and IT.

I’m originally from Northern Kentucky (greater Cincinnati area) but always knew I wanted to get out and explore someplace new during college. I’m super outdoorsy and have definitely taken advantage of the fact that we are lucky enough to go to school so close to Shenandoah National Park. I am a big runner, but also love hiking, skiing, biking, and kayaking. I’ve been vegan for almost four years now but am a horrible chef. Most days you can find me grinding out work at a coffee shop (I drink a minimum of two cups of coffee every day).

Some of my involvements include McIntire Investment Institute, a student-run investment fund, and CASH, a volunteer organization that offers free tax filing services in the Charlottesville community. I’m also a member of the Alpha Phi sorority, and, of course, a McIntire Ambassador! I have absolutely loved every moment of my time here at McIntire, from the incredible teaching staff to the environment of being surrounded by such ambitious peers. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my enthusiasm about McIntire with others as an Ambassador. 

Fun fact: My proudest fun fact is that I drive a stick shift.
