Work History

Retroactively putting this list together has been tough. If you attempt this, I recommend documenting as you go - even if it's just a quick bullet-point list.

I'm 100% positive I'm still missing things that belong on this list.

Professional Organizations

I've volunteered or been a member of a few different professional organizations over the years. Here's a small list of the ones I can remember:

  • Delta Sigma Pi (DSP) Business Fraternity @ OSU
  • NAEO Future Directions Committee
  • NAEO Conference Committee
  • NAEO Communications Committee
  • NAEO Board of Directors (partial term due to employment status changes)
  • Girl Develop It Columbus! Chapter - Teaching Assistant
  • DeVry Local Business Leader Focus Group on recruiting
  • Forward Party Ohio - State Leadership Team - Technical
