How did you choose your degree program?

When I first came to Mason I wanted to pursue a degree in Finance. I ended up changing over to the BIS program because it allowed me to pace myself and pick a degree that fit into my already established career.

How did your academic experiences in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences impact you?

The CHSS experience has given me the ability to think in a more critical way, provide ways to communicate more effectively, understand the value of others and help me learn about cultural differences.

What accomplishment(s) during your time at Mason are you most proud of?

One of my greatest accomplishments is committing myself to finish my degree, making the Dean's List every semester, and finding out that I was chosen as a CHSS Outstanding Student for the Dec 22 graduating class!!

Are there faculty or staff members who made a difference during your Mason career?

I would like to my mentor Trevor Watkins for the help and encouragement he has provided over the last year.

I hurt my neck last semester and the pain was unbearable, but I managed to work my way through and had surgery in the last month of class. I want to thank the BIS staff for being there and for the support they showed me through all the obstacles that have been thrown my way.

What are your current career plans following graduation? What are your long-term career goals?

My goal is to upgrade my position and widen my horizons with exciting new learning opportunities!
