Education

Northeastern University

Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration - Marketing Concentration - Fall 2009


My time at Northeastern University was excellent for my educational and professional growth. The unique cooperative education program at Northeastern enabled me to establish a professional foundation at two large Boston based companies. My full-time work at John Hancock and Staples (both 6 month stints) exposed me to the daily challenges of work within the marketing industry.

Shortly after arriving at Northeastern, I found myself to be very active within the University. Below are some of the groups in which I was most involved...

  • Northeastern University Marketing Association
  • Northeastern University Wrestling Club
  • Northeastern University Ultimate Frisbee Team
