After graduating from Anderson with a major in Marketing, minor in Entrepreneurship, and my MBA I have been working for a non-profit organization called Christ In Youth (CIY). I currently work as the Tour/Marketing Manager for the preteen conference called SuperStart! We tour all over the country hosting a two day event designed specifically for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students.
My background at AU has really prepared me for this position. This job has allowed me to stretch my Marketing wings and get to work together on a stellar marketing team that continues to push and grow me. With our tour still being so young my Entrepreneurial spirit continues to be fed as I get to be creative in my job and offer new ideas and help cast vision for what this program could look like in future years. I am grateful for the MBA I received at Anderson as my job can be very administrative too while off the road. I feel that my time spent in the Falls School of Business helped prepare me to be a solid candidate for my job, taught me how to present myself professionally, work well in a team setting, and bring God into my work. I am grateful to get to use my business skills in a ministry setting.
