Why did you choose McIntire? I chose McIntire because everyone I met during the recruiting process made me feel important, and not just like any other applicant on a list. There was a constant outreach from multiple people to not only seen how far along I was in the application process, but also to see just how my family and I were doing. Finally, the networking events and mixers really drove home what the program is all about: genuine dedication to building a complete professional.

What do you enjoy so far? I love the overall environment at McIntire; it is warm and welcoming.

What has surprised you? The level of support the students receive right from the start of the program has astonished me. And the interactive nature of the classes pushes you to build long-lasting relationships with your peers. You are bound to walk away with at least four close friends by the end of the program.

Fun facts about yourself: I’ve been to three Kid Cudi concerts in three different cities, all within 48 hours. As you can tell, I am a huge fan.

Hobbies: Fly fishing, weightlifting, binge watching Netflix, watching college football (Roll Tide!)
