Professional Bio

I will be graduating this coming May 2022 with my master’s degree in Human Resources Management. During my time here at Penn State, I have been actively involved in the Penn State Alumni Association where I was on the Membership recruitment committee to make Penn State students aware of the organization and the great benefits of the network, I also am a member of the SHRM branch here at Penn State, and I am also involved in College Moxie. In my free time, I have been able to be a middle school softball coach with the State College Area School District.

Throughout my college career, I have also been actively involved with jump-starting my career in HR. I have had the opportunity to gain 3 years of human resources experience throughout my past 7 HR-specific internships. I have had the ability to work with companies ranging from small tech start-ups, consulting companies, and even worked as an HR Business Partner intern with a Fortune 500 company (International Paper). My takeaways from my internships have been gaining the foundational day-to-day aspects of what it takes to be an HR practitioner. My experience has allowed me to gain exposure to recruitment, strategic compensation and benefits, compliance, HR systems, onboarding and training, and employee and labor relations.

After graduation, I hope that I will be working for a company where my values align with theirs, along with strongly believing in their company mission. My long-term HR goal is to become a human resources executive. Some of the industries I have an interest in going into AR&D, manufacturing, consulting, media and entertainment, legal, and technology.
