Major: Psychology of Performance (individualized)

Hometown: Centennial, Colorado

My fellowship experience:
It was my goal to dip my toes into a variety of areas on the organizational side of a non-profit in order to decide whether or not the non-profit sector is the right place for me professionally. By the end of the summer I achieved that goal: I served as an event planner, graphic designer, caregiver, grant reporter, media outreach, and (my favorite) a case manager for a fantastic non-profit organization. I plan to work in a non profit in a capacity where I directly serve people and requires that I utilize my ability to synthesize. I am strongly considering case management as a place to start my future career.
