1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
Since graduation, I have had the pleasure of working at two big three automakers and a tier-one supplier. I have also completed my MBA at Wayne State University since my undergrad degree from GVSU. My Grand Valley experience has set me up for success in my career and in life.

2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
One of my favorite memories at Grand Valley was competing in college athletics on the swim team and making so many memories with all my teammates. Being around 60 of your closest friends for four years was an amazing experience.

3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Some of the best advice I’ve received is to always be open to new opportunities and take them when they come because they don’t come often. Expanding your network is the best way for new opportunities to arrive at your doorstep.

4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand Valley experience.
Life-changing experience.

5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
I would like to help by being an advocate for my companies mission. Zero Emissions, Zero Congestion, Zero Crashes. If I can have a small part in making these goals a reality then the world will be a better place.
