    Hometown: Mooresville, NC
    Major: Logistics Management

    Sysco Food Distribution, OccFit Solutions, Williams-Sonoma, HFI, Microsoft

    What inspired me to become a Career Coach:

    After taking the BA2601 career development course, I knew that helping my peers with their professional development skills was exactly what I wanted to do. The resources that I have been able to utilize at OCM has been nothing but beneficial. I wanted to be able to give back and share my knowledge with my Fisher peers.

    Fun fact about me:

    I flew a plane twice in the 6th grade!

    My best advice I would share with a new Fisher student:

    The sky is the limit! Fisher has so many different resources to help you succeed, you just need to be resourceful and take advantage of the help being offered. This will make your transition extremely smooth and worthwhile.

    What inspired me to become a Career Coach:

    I have used the Peer Career Coaches before to help me prepare for upcoming career fairs and interviews. I had no idea what a resume should look like and the coaches helped me figure that out. I want to be able help another student and give back through a program that helped me.

    Best advice I would share with a new Fisher student:

    Take advantage of the resources and opportunities within Fisher. There are so many people who were once in your shoes and want to help you and give back. Step out of your comfort zone and join an organization within Fisher. You will not only be able to do something you are passionate about, but you will be surrounded by students who may become a classmate, mentor and even a friend.

    Hometown: Westerville, Ohio
    Major: Marketing

    2019: Marketing and Public Relations for RG Barry Brands

    2020: Discover Financial Services 

    What inspired me to become a Career Coach:

    After constantly helping my friends with editing resumes and professional emails, I was excited when I found a role within OCM that includes these tasks but on a more concrete basis. I’m looking forward to the chance to help students and get more involved in the Fisher community!

    On-campus/Community Involvement:

    Student-Alumni Council (Executive Assistant), Face the Children at Ohio State (Outgoing Trip Director/Mentor), Chi Omega Sorority, Cru Ministries

    Best advice I would share with a new Fisher student:

    Join student organizations! Through student orgs, you are more likely to get to know people who can connect you to other resources as well. I have met people older than me that have been able to direct me towards certain classes and professors in Fisher that have led me closer to my future career goals. There is so much to learn from being in college and joining student organizations (that are of actual interest) has been the primary driver of my positive college experience.
