When I came to Cabrini as a freshman, I knew that I wanted to major in finance. I love the business world and seeing how each sector within it ultimately affects every person.

Because my dad is an actuary, he introduced me to the business world at a very early age, so I have always been surrounded by some element of business and trying to learn the different facets of it. I chose to major in finance because it is constantly changing , no situation is quite like another.

With finance, you are able to choose among a variety of career paths and specialize in a specific area, whether it be securities, banking, lending or corporate finance.

Since starting at Cabrini, I have been able to actively use my major in a number of ways.

In the fall of my junior year, I was given the opportunity to spend the semester in Washington, D.C., interning full time at the Department of the Treasury in their Office of Financial Management.

While there, I helped to create the salary budget for the entire Treasury Department for the 2008 fiscal year. This experience helped me see first hand how the public sector worked and career path that I could choose by having a finance degree.

At Cabrini, I have been the secretary and currently am the president of the Finance Club. The Finance Club brings together finance majors and minors through various speakers, trips and community-service engagements.

I believe that the experiences that I have had inside and outside of Cabrini have significantly increased my learning within my major and have allowed me to fully develop an understanding of the vast world of business.
