Alumni in 10
Since graduating, I've had several different jobs. I lived for a short time in Chicago, moved back, and started my current job at Accenture. If you ever want to know more details, I'm here to chat!
I wouldn't be where I am today without GVSU. My professors, advisers, and peers were extraordinarily supportive and helpful. I also had an on-campus job on the Budgets & Finance team in the GVSU Finance Department.
Getting a degree that I could use in many fields let me have a broad variety of career options, and provided me a skill set I can utilize and grow upon no matter where I end up.
I have so many fond memories from my time on campus, and I look back on my experience with pride. I'm so happy that I took a chance to travel all the way from Arizona to Michigan to spend my formative college years in West Michigan.
After graduation, I accepted an internship with the National Cherry Festival. Even though the internship was low pay right out of college, the experience was worth everything! I completed the eight month internship in July 2017.
Grand Valley showed me that a diverse background can be essential in my profession.
After graduation I moved to Orlando, Florida, for three years where I worked at The Walt Disney Company in various event planning roles.
I have been an advisor since 2015 for my sorority chapter Alpha Omicron Pi, participated as an alumni mentor, and recently joined the Young Alumni Counsel which I plan on being in as long as I am able to!
Since graduation, I have been working for Kalamazoo Public Schools as a 2nd and 4th grade teacher at Woodward Elementary. Currently, I am starting a new role as District Literacy Coach.
Grand Valley helped me develop as an individual and professional. There are many stories that come to mind that helped shape my future between club sports, professional organizations, the career center, and professors.
