Allison Gouveia

Amhert Massachusetts

I’m a junior in the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studying Management. I thrive in collaborative and interactive environments where I can be around people. I’m outgoing and a people person so I want my career to enrich that part of my personality. I’m also a natural leader, which is one of the main reasons I’ve gravitated towards a career in management.

I have recently become interested in cooking. My parents are great cooks so I’ve learned a lot from just watching them and by cooking for my sisters and I. It’s a creative outlet for me and definitely a stress reliever. I’ve noticed that I take a lot of pride in making something that everyone really likes and sometimes I even surprise myself. I love to be able to take raw materials and create something unique. Lately, I’ve been focusing on cooking healthy meals that are mostly carb free. I also am very passionate about health and fitness. I really enjoy the team environment that is created via group fitness classes like kickboxing and spin. Exercising is a way for me to clear my head and share a common goal with others. I would love to teach classes one day and really motivate others to feel better about themselves.
