Student in Excelsior, Minnesota

I am a junior at Rollins College pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communications with a concentration in public relations. I grew up in Excelsior, Minnesota where I attended Holy Family Catholic High school, which instilled a personal appreciation for religion, discipline, hard work, and strong relationships. Growing up on a lake just outside of Minneapolis allowed me to experience both environments and appreciate the hard working nature of the city in addition to the balanced lifestyle in my hometown. I believe the exposure to both environments was an attributing factor in developing the well-rounded person I am today. Since the age of fifteen, I have had numerous jobs in retail, sales, and customer service possessions that taught me countless life lessons and assisted my conversational versatility. I am a product of my environment and growing up under my parent’s roof has naturally fostered my passion for health and fitness, traveling, philanthropy endeavors, and the great outdoors. Through my various jobs, schools, and personal experiences, I have learned to trust and utilize my intuition in everyday life. Whether it is an angry customer at work or a gloomy friend in need of advice, I rely on my emotional intelligence and social skills to successfully resolve the issue at hand. I will translate and apply my strengths, passions, and personal attributes for a sales position in the fitness industry where I can apply my communicating skills and prosper in the industry that fascinates me most.
