Throughout my four years at Huntington, the business department felt personalized to me. With every class I took, I got to know my professors more, and they got to know me more. Getting personalized help, advice, and mentorship made it easy to feel at home and appreciated. Every internship I got was recommended and encouraged by my professors and advisors, and they followed up with questions about how it was going and what they could do to help through the semester. The business department weren’t just teachers I saw every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; they were guides and friends during my four years at Huntington. The knowledge I learned from them as people and through the classes I took with them, I am taking with me as I move on into life beyond college.

I believe we can worship God through our work and how we practice business. I hope I can share wisdom from my experience, God’s Word, and best business practices to prepare students for successful, fulfilling careers in business.

I decided to major in business because there’s so much that can be done within this area. I don’t know what my future holds – God hasn’t shown me yet – but I love helping others. I hope whichever path God leads me, I will be able to glorify Him in all that I do.
