Fall Semester Included…
- Vice President of Member Development: At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, my extracurricular involvement is mainly encompassed by my membership to our Women in Business Organization. This club, which hosts ~100 members, offers a variety of professional and personal development opportunities to women of all majors, with a high focus on business. As VP Member Development, I was responsible for coordinating and overseeing all of our Professional Development events and Community Involvement service opportunities; these events summed up to about 10 total throughout our 15 week semester. Some of the partnerships I helped develop included: Kimberly Clark, Northwestern Mutual, and the Ronald McDonald House of Madison.
- Academics: This semester, I was fortunate enough to expand my education and further progress towards achieving my degree by completing the following courses:
- Marketing Research
- Management of an Insurance Enterprise
- Brand Management
- Gender and Women’s Studies: Global Women’s Heath

- Spanish! Primarily, I cannot wait to further my global understanding of business through a variety of classes. I hope to continue improving my ability to both speak and read Spanish and will be taking a Spanish course in addition to 4 other degree-fulfilling classes.
- Travel: Having never before seen Europe, I cannot wait to travel throughout Spain and the rest of the continent! Some of the locations I’m most excited to visit include:
- Amsterdam, Netherlands
- London, England
