Major: Environmental Studies and Business Management Expected Graduation: May 2017
I joined SEA my freshman year because their environmental education and activism focused mission meshed with my values. I decided to get more involved my sophomore year and I became the Secretary and led Water Week 2015 and brought in the CEO of the Alliance of the Great Lakes, Joel Brammeier, to speak! Over the past two years I had engulfed myself in the organization and understood the leadership responsibilities. Due to this, I ran for President my junior year and won and have been in this terrific role ever since! As President of SEA, my basic responsibilities and duties are to act as the primary face of the organization, lead weekly executive and general board meetings, be the main connection point for outside parties, delegate tasks to the executive board, organize the agenda for the year, and assure the organization maintains its mission and values.
Within my career, I hope to one day work with companies to identify how they can integrate sustainability practices into their business strategies and create a instrumental difference in the way businesses view their responsibility towards the environment.
My current involvements include being the President of the Student Environmental Alliance, Vice President of Chapter Operations of Delta Sigma Pi, member of the Sustainability Committee, Sustainability Intern, and the project leader for the Go Solar! Loyola campaign. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, singing, playing tennis, making up cycled crafts, cooking and baking, designing fashionable clothing ensembles, volunteering, experimenting with new vegan restaurants and recipes, hiking, and traveling.
