I grew up on Milwaukee’s north side the youngest of five. Later we moved to Brown Deer where I completed my high school education. I am currently pursing my dream to graduate from Marquette University with a bachelor’s degrees in both Computer Science & Data Science. My involvement in the Educational Opportunity Program offers the academic support, facilities, tutors, and community that I will need to be successful at Marquette. I am looking forward to working Here at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, I want to offer the best of my background and knowledge to aid in our mission of "...providing exemplary service, nurturing relationships for generations and honoring commitment."
I am a senior at Marquette University studying Corporate Communications with a minor in Psychology. While on campus, I try to stay as involved as possible by working with various organizations. This lets me have an active stake in my academic community and allows myself the time to engage with fellow students. I currently serve as the Vice President of the Student Advisory Board of the Educational Opportunity Program and I am also the Public Relations & Marketing Chair for the newly charted Campus Curlz, Incorporated. If I’m not on campus, I am typically with my mom trying new hot yoga places around Milwaukee or at home trying to make new tasty pescatarian dishes.
