What is something you wish everyone knew about your major? Business/economics are everywhere! Anyone can benefit from learning about how business/economics influence society and our daily lives.

What was your most impactful class or professor? Human Resource Management with Dr. Annie Kato. This class helped me to prepare for my future career in HR and Dr. Kato is one of the most amazing professors I’ve had at SPU.

What are you excited for in your future career? I will be working in HR as a Health and Benefits Specialist at Aon, and I hope to make the workplace a more positive and transformational space for employees!

What advice do you have for incoming students? Now is the time to step outside of your comfort zone! All of the best experiences and relationships in college required me to be bold and put myself out there!

How have you grown during your time at SPU? I have grown in so many different ways! Perhaps the biggest is being more confident in who I am on a personal and professional level.
