Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes / Sr. Special Events Manager

1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
Since graduation, I was hired at Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes as their Special Events Manager. I have been promoted since and have also helped grow their internship program as a personal passion of mine.

2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
My final presentation for my Advertising Capstone. My group gave a FLAWLESS presentation to our clients. I never felt more on top of my game than at that moment. I was so proud of myself and my group.

3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Every person you meet is a potential door to a new opportunity—personally or professionally. Build good bridges even in that just-for-now job, because you never know how they’ll weave into the larger picture of your life.—Kristina Leonardi, Career Coach

4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand Valley experience.
Community. Growth. Experience.

5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
Help young people realize their potential. Whether it be professionally or not, I want to always continue mentoring young people to help them realize how BIG the world is and how much of a footprint you can leave if you just press on hard enough.
