I am a student at the University of Missouri studying marketing, project management, and mass communication. This spring, I will be taking the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam. I was recommended for the certification by my professor after excelling in his project management class, and I look forward to implementing my skills as an effective project manager in my future career.
I am a passionate cyclist and a small business entrepreneur. I currently compete on the Mizzou Cycling Team and serve as the team’s Vice President of Sponsorships. In 2016, I started my own company, Gentle Gear, selling bike related clothing and merchandise to help put more children in my community on bicycles who could not otherwise afford them. As a League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor, I teach Smart Cycling classes to children and adults, and champion the numerous benefits and opportunities of bicycling.
I am also a proponent of renewable energy projects. After being inspired by members of my community who built and installed their own solar systems, I took it upon myself to learn the science of photovoltaics and attempt my own build. The experiment has been both challenging and enlightening. You can read about the experience on my blog! I am currently exploring solar industry project management and marketing positions in South Asia, Mexico, and the United States.
