Risk Management & Insurance, Accounting, and Finance


Georgetown, Kentucky

  • Track and Field
  • Gamma Iota Sigma
  • Game Day Crew

Why did you choose to attend Ohio Dominican University?
I chose to attend Ohio Dominican because I liked its insurance program, as well as the idea of being on a smaller campus. When I met with coach Paul Benedict, he really sold me on the idea of ODU and the kind of community it has. 

How do you stay involved at ODU?
Participating on ODU’s Track and Field team has allowed to make a lot of new friends. Since I was a transfer student, I didn’t know many people on campus. Doing game day set up for all the home events has also allowed me to meet new people and make new connections. 

What do you want to do after graduation?
After I graduate, I want to go into the insurance industry and work my way up in the company. Once I make a decent living, I hope to have a private accounting business on the side to keep me busy. 

Why are you proud to be an ODU student?
I’m proud to be an ODU student because Ohio Dominican is like a new home to me. The sense of community is so strong that it makes it hard to go home!
