If there's one thing you need to know about me it's that...

I am an individual who loves to push myself.

In college, I completed two degrees—with honors— in only three and a half years. I graduated from Bentley University with a B.S. in Business Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship, and a second degree in Ethics & Social Responsibility. To foster my passion for entrepreneurship, I worked at three different startups, helping them develop and grow.  Also, my junior year, I founded a for-profit company centered around women's safety. 

After graduation, I solo backpacked throughout Southeast Asia for five months, learning about different cultures, societies, and myself. I volunteered at the Elephant Nature Park and Baan San Fran Orphanage. Through these incredible experiences, I met innovative people whose creative approach to problem solving was inspiring and eye-opening. While in Vietnam, I worked at an environmental education startup, helping to develop their marketing and business plan. I also taught a seminar about soft-business skills to local college students.

Now that I have returned from my travels, I am excited about venturing into the B Corp world. Traveling has shown me how better business practices by for-profit entities can change the world.
