Hometown: Richmond, VA

About Me: I’m from Richmond, VA, and grew up as a Hokie fan (especially football). I decided to break my family tradition and attend UVA, but no worries, I am now 100% dedicated to UVA (and its sports)!

For approximately 10 days at the beginning of first year, I was a pre-med student but soon came to the revelation that I wanted to pursue something else. Since then, I have been a program director for Cavs in the Classroom through Madison House for the past two years. I was also the treasurer for Chi Omega sorority and on the executive board of the football marketing CIO, Fill the Hill. This past summer, I had the great opportunity to work with a startup called Brandefy.

Both of my parents are accountants, and people always asked if I would become one too. I denied this many times until I realized that I actually enjoyed my Accounting classes. The Integrated Core Experience is structured in a way such that we can use our knowledge learned and apply it to real-world scenarios. I have had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Australia and learn about doing business in another country alongside other McIntire students and faculty. One of my favorite parts of McIntire has been getting to know all of my classmates and professors. I love how I always run in to someone from my block or McIntire around Grounds!
