Major: Human and Organizational Development

Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
I chose Vandy because not only would I be getting a top 20 education, but I’d also get to play football in the best conference in the nation (SEC).

What are your career goals?
To work in sales/marketing.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
Time management and late nights.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?
I map out my week beforehand by putting all the dates and reminders into my IPhone calendar.  This plan alone allows me to stay disciplined and on track.

What is your ritual before taking a test?
I take a few deep breaths and say a prayer.

What is your favorite quote?
“Life’s a garden, dig it.”-Joe Dirt
