What is your favorite Seidman memory?
My favorite Seidman memories involve my time with Seidman IPO. The bonds built through this club are invaluable to me and the professional development I experienced significantly contributed to where I am today.

Our building namesake – Bill Seidman – exhibited many desirable traits of a leader such as innovator, integrity, curiosity and future-minded. How did your experience at Seidman help you develop one or more of these traits?
All of my classes at Seidman taught me that no matter how much I know, there is always more to learn. This helped develop my curiosity and is something that I will always carry with me during my life, continuously seeking to build my knowledge and make connections to the things I have learned.

What would you like people in the community to know about Seidman graduates like you?
Seidman develops well-rounded graduates who are prepared to adapt to the changing dynamics of the professional world they step into. Our professors challenge us to think critically and establish a groundwork of top-tier skills that we can leverage to handle any challenges we will face during our careers and make a difference in any organization we become a part of.

What is your career aspiration?
I desire to have an impact on the community and help others reach their goals. Specifically, I aspire to be a leading professional in the real estate industry and help create tangible, long-lasting impacts around me that will outlive myself.

How did your time at Seidman College prepare you to contribute to your community as a Laker for a Lifetime?
Seidman gave me knowledge and skills not only within my field but as a member of the larger community. My professors connected the things I learned in the classroom to the impact they can have in the real world, and I believe that this will allow me to give back to my community and have a positive impact on others moving forward.
