  6. Biography

    There isn't a day that goes by that I don't reminisce about my time at BW -- whether it's about one of my professors, a course I took that has helped me in my professional life, PR Club, everything I learned through my internships, my beloved Alpha Phi sisters or studying abroad, not one of my experiences was dull. Being so involved was the best thing I could have done as it helped me land my first job out of college at The Greater Cleveland Partnership/COSE and lead me to my current position in Marketing at Hyland Software, Inc.
