Bio:

I graduated Cum Laude from Oxy this May with Honors in Economics. I am currently working as a Financial Analyst at Warner Media and plan to pursue an MBA later on in my career. I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is where I am currently living as I work from home during the pandemic. A fun fact about me is that I have two cats!

Career Advice:

I highly recommend looking outside of Oxy career fairs for job opportunities. I joined an organization called ALPFA which allowed me to receive job opportunities from major companies including Goldman Sachs and the Big Four Accounting firms. Beyond ALPFA, I also recommend finding other Oxy alum through LinkedIn and YorkConnection who are at a company or in a role that you are interested in. YorkConnection is an amazing platform for Oxy alum and current students to network!
