What are you doing now?
I'm a working actress in the Chicago market. I am working in commercials, voice over, print, and improv theatre.
Why did you choose SJC?
Because I had so much fun visiting my older sister when she was there.
As a student, what was your experience like at SJC?
I met my two best friends the first night on campus, still my dear friends to this day. I loved the environment and the professors were wonderful…
What experiences did you appreciate most in the department of your major?
I really appreciate the Business Department's desire to produce well rounded students. The Business Networking event is a great example of that. It was so helpful going into the working world and attending events knowing how to "behave" versus acting like a college student.
How were the faculty members in your department helpful to you?
I always felt that the majority of the professors cared about the students. They wanted us to enjoy our education and college experience!
While I am not working in a traditional business setting, the education I received 100% helps me to navigate my "business" and the marketing of my brand in my industry. I am very grateful for my awesome professors, who brought their experience and stories to class every day.
How did the Core Program integrate with your major?
Core was amazing. I think just being able to discuss ideas and different viewpoints in Core carries over to all areas of life. Listening and communicating effectively IS business.
