I'm a lifelong Michigander with a strong commitment to education and community engagement. In 2022, I proudly graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a BBA in Business Management and a minor in music performance and am currently pursuing my MBA at the same institution. My career has taken me on a path of purpose, including roles as a Corporate Giving intern at General Motors, a Volunteer Engagement and Giving Intern with Rocket Community Fund, and a Community Student Assistant at Engage@EMU.

Outside of work, one of my proudest achievements to date is co-founding the Gender Consciousness Project, a grassroots organization dedicated to empowering young women of color in Southeast Michigan.

What do you love about Michigan?

Michigan is truly underrated, and there are countless reasons to cherish it. I love the fact that you are never more than 6 miles away from a body of water, the various experiences offered by our four distinct seasons, the vastness of backgrounds among Michigan's residents, and the warmth and camaraderie shared by its people. I am proud to be a Michigander!
