I grew up in a small town in Michigan and "ventured" to Anderson University. I never imagined that I would end up, 22 and engaged working public accounting in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In fact, I never imagined most of the things I experienced as a student at the FSB. A big catalyst in the development I experienced was SIFE. SIFE literally changed my life. It started when I prepared predictive financials for a potential laundry mat as a freshman. Then it progressed to being able to lead the competition team, one of the most stressful jobs I've ever had.
Falls School of Business Testimonials
While a student at AU, I completed internships at both non-profit and for-profit companies as I was interested in both and wanted to figure out which one would be a better fit for me. InvisionAU assisted me with my for-profit internship and while I enjoyed my time at that particular company I quickly learned that working for a cause is what motivated me. I completed my non-profit internship at the Make-A-Wish Foundation and was hired on relatively soon after I graduated from AU. I didn't realize coming into this profession how much it would change my perspective on so many things.
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.
Without the professors at the FSB, I would definitely not be where I am today. With faith on my side, I feel better everyday about the product I provide, in an area where small businesses struggle daily. As my advisor, Dr. Fox really helped me towards the end when I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. Dr. Haskett and Dr. Lucas were always available after hours for any questions I had, and I had a lot.
"I feel very fortunate and thankful for the wonderful experience I had in the Falls School of Business MBA program. From the very first class, I was able to take what I had learned and immediately apply the lessons in my everyday job, which is something I had not totally expected. Furthermore, not only did I learn vital business skills that will continue to help propel my career forward, but I had the opportunity to form life-long friendships with some of my classmates because of the unique cohort design."
