Favorite class(es): Spatial Analysis taught by Professor Davies changed my life! It made me see the world in a new way.
I loved business, but I knew that I didn't want to go to business school. I went in to Economics but realized that it wasn't "human" enough. I took a few classes that were in majors that I was interested in, but Geography really drew me because it showed you how to quantify the world while still seeing the people that lived in it.
Moving from college to career:
My undergraduate degree wasn't as important as pursuing my interests in topics, industries, activities, and people that made me happy. I got to my job now, which rocks by the way, by doing what makes me happy and growing the skill set I needed to be successful at pursuing that.
I worked in residential real estate and then moved in to commercial real estate after college. I was attracted to the urban environment, but realized that the job that I was in was the wrong one. I did a lot of volunteering for non-profit fundraising events and really enjoyed the challenge of essentially starting mini businesses every time we had an event. I started to look for a job, didn't find anything that excited me so I made one. I started a non-profit that did exactly what I enjoyed doing. This beefed up my marketing, PR, and branding skills and helped me build the confidence and connections to get me where I wanted to be.
