What is your favorite thing about your career?
Flexibility and freedom! My career at Mather has allowed me to wear as many hats as I want. I have designed pricing strategies for small newspapers as well as multinational, publicly traded enterprises. I have conducted research, lead recruiting programs, learned new coding languages, and furthered my knowledge of applied economics. It is very rewarding to be supported – and encouraged – by Mather to try new things and find my niche!
What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?
Fine arts education has always been close to my heart. Attending a fine arts magnet school from 8th-12th grade showed me how important it is for one to be well-rounded – not just to focus on coursework, but also to play an instrument, build a stage set, or practice painting and photography. Doing so opens a student’s mind to a more creative style of thinking that bolsters their abilities in many facets of their life.
