About me: I was born in Japan (I have a Navy dad), but grew up in Virginia Beach, Va. I attended Tidewater Community College before transferring into McIntire. I was a competitive swimmer my entire life growing up, competing at a national level for 13 years. I also have been a beach lifeguard for the last five years, and recently joined the Sales and Trading Group at McIntire.

My McIntire experience thus far has been hectic, challenging, but all-in-all incredible. You have to hit the gas from the moment you walk in the door, but this is an environment that is fully suited to help you get the job done no matter what. The faculty and staff are some of the most caring and sincere people I’ve ever met. Each of them genuinely wants to see you succeed and is willing to help you in any way they can.
