Being a part of Women in Business has allowed me to grow as a member of a community of driven women at Vanderbilt. I have loved the mentorship I have received and given, as well as the opportunity to engage with the Nashville business community.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it.

My favorite class was Business, Civil Society, and the Environment. My professor's passion shone through, and it shed light on the way businesses affect the environment through their choices and influence on policies.

Describe your most memorable Nashville or off-campus experience.

In my sophomore year I was studying with my best friend in the library for a big test we had coming up when we heard about a free pop-up Luke Bryan concert on Broadway, one of the main streets downtown, that started in an hour. We both thought about it and said, "We shouldn't go", and then looked up from our books a minute later and just started running. We left our bags and headed to the concert, pushing ourway to the front where we had a great view of an amazing concert!
