Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.
I’m a Colorado native, born and raised in Loveland. I received my bachelor’s in business and marketing from the University of Northern Colorado in 2013. I have been working in the financial services industry since graduation and have been with my current employer for four years. In my spare time, I enjoy snowboarding, hiking and spending time with family and friends.

Tell us about your experience at the immersion.
From the moment I stepped on campus, my immersion experience was unlike anything I have experienced from a school program before. I had the ability to network with other students in my cohort, challenge myself to think about a current opportunity in my company and then present that idea to a group of people who offered valuable feedback. I will definitely be attending other immersions in the future even though only two are required.
