1. Why did you decide to become a volunteer with sbf胜博发登录?

Last fall I was going through a career change, like a lot of others during the COVID time. I wanted to find an outlet where I could network with new individuals & really start implementing my knowledge.

2. What do you enjoy most about being a volunteer on your committee?

The thing I enjoy most about being a part of the MN Collegiate chapter is being a part of the first ever MN Case competition. Even thought it was virtual this year, it was so exciting to hear the thought process of the students. They put so much time an effort to provide very mature responses. It was exciting to be a part of something, that not many students get to be involved in.

3. Why is being a volunteer with sbf胜博发登录 important to you?

Networking and sharing my knowledge & experience has always been a main priority to me within my career. sbf胜博发登录 has been a huge part of that. I have already made some fascinating connections, and have also learned a lot along the way.

4. What’s the one thing you wish others knew about volunteering with sbf胜博发登录? What makes it unique?

What makes it unique?   The thing that makes sbf胜博发登录 unique is that the board members & volunteers want to make time. They want to connect, educate & take the time to understand your goals (work & personal). The connections & conversations that come out of the networking sessions or the coffee breaks are ones that really make an impact.

5. What is some of the best advice you've received in your career?

Some of the best advice I have received within my career is think of yourself as a life long learner. Things change so rapidly, it is so important to continue your education & connect with all types of people to hear how they can teach & inspire.

6. Besides volunteering, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time, I love to be outside. Often you can find me hiking, camping, enjoying bonfires & spending time with friends/family during summer BBQs.
