"My advice to future Lehigh students is to not limit yourself. Try new clubs and organizations, and don’t be afraid to change your initial goals from when you first step foot on campus."
Why did you choose Lehigh?
I chose Lehigh because of its career-oriented academic programs and great campus community.
What are your career aspirations?
I am working for PriceWaterhouse Coopers in Philadelphia starting next fall in their Audit practice of Insurance & Banking. I hope to obtain my CPA and expand to working in the corporate setting of Financial Services.
What was your favorite Lehigh moment?
My favorite Lehigh moment is when the basketball team beat Duke!
What was the highlight of your Lehigh experience?
Move-in day has been the highlight of my Lehigh experience. I am in my third year as a Gryphon (“R.A.”) for first-year students, and love the excitement of welcoming new students and their families every year!
What is the most helpful experience as you plan your career?
Career Services does an amazing job of helping and guiding students to find internships and jobs. The network of Lehigh alum is very accessible, and they are always willing to help a fellow Mountain Hawk in the job search.
What is your favorite thing to do at Lehigh when you are not studying?
Outside of studying, I love to go to Lehigh sporting events!
