How have you applied your experience participating in college athletics to your current employment?
By keeping a level head no matter what situation comes my way. Working for the US CEO is a high pace environment and paying attention to every detail is crucial.
How has your Felician academic coursework and other extracurricular activities impacted your life, especially professionally?
With Felician being such a small community, it is easy to get distracted when you go into the real world, especially at a large firm like Deloitte. However, having the support staff at Felician had me ready for anything that came my way when I graduated.
What advice, about any aspect of college life, would you give to a current Felician student-athlete?
Make sure you figure out what you want to do with your career before it is too late. You spend too much time practicing for your sport and don't realize how fast these four years will go by. Take the time to sit down with a counselor and plan out your next move!
