How Did You Break Into The Industry / Your First Job
I broke into my first position as an intern in this industry through persistence. Upon graduating Illinois State University with a degree in public relations, I immediately started a job in sales. The money was great but I couldn't shake the feeling that I was meant for so much more! After speaking with some of my mentors and having a talk with myself, I decided to take a leap. My leap of faith was based solely on a sink or swim mentality. I quit my job and came to Chicago determined to work my way into the industry. Due to the fact that I have been promoting and hosting events on college campuses across Illinois since I was 17, I leaped at the idea of interning for Rockit Ranch. Rockit Ranch Productions is a Chicago powerhouse when it comes to elevated entertainment and an unmatched brand. After my interview and acceptance, my journey into the industry began.
Long Term Career Goal
My long term goal is to attain my MBA, move to California (2025), master foreign languages (Creole, Spanish, & French) and eventually transition from agency-side to client-side.

- Become an ADCOLOR FUTURE (completed)
- Win Bill Sharp Award
- Win ADCOLOR Rising Star
- Make the "40 Under 40" list
- Attain my MBA
- Secure a six-figure base salary and reach $10 million through investments, business ventures, salary, and events
- Make a stamp on this industry in the way I see fit
- Give back to the MGP to aid in its growth as a staple in this industry

Also, I plan on continuing my work coordinating and promoting events through my company that started as a student organization. I plan on continuing my goal of providing opportunities for students and my peers alike through my organization and beyond.
