Why did you choose the Business Management & Marketing programs?

I was initially going to school to become an electrical lineman. However, after speaking with business instructor Teri Stark, I was convinced to at least earn an associate degree in Business Management since I was already here. Long story short: I fell in love with the intricacies of business and have since gone on to get my second degree in Marketing as well.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

Marketing analytics. I find it so interesting how precise we can target ads to our target markets and stretch marketing budgets by understanding the data. If they had this as a competitive event at DECA, I would be all over it!

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

It was local and I had a scholarship. And after meeting the staff and speaking with a few instructors, I knew I was going to have a good time here.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Collegiate DECA, hands down. If it wasn't for DECA, I don't believe I would have had fun learning about business. It's one thing to read a book about a business plan, but actually putting one together and presenting it to a panel of judges who are your potential investors is a much different experience.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

I plan on working with Blue Door Consulting in Oshkosh as a social media manager or data analyst. I firmly believe I will excel in those positions.
