Welcome

Education

I hope that by visiting my website you can gain a better view of who I am personally and professionally. I am currently a junior at the Eller College of Management in the University of Arizona. My major is business management however, I have always been passionate about retail as well so I have also taken a minor in fashion from the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing.

I chose the University of Arizona because of it’s elite and competitive business school. In the beginning I didn’t know what I wanted to study so I chose business and tried different general education classes to try to find my passion. However, what I didn’t know was I was already so passionate about fashion that my “soul-searching” wasn’t going to get me very far. I finally realized I loved both business and fashion so I chose to go after my dream of being a buyer.

Future Goals

As an only child with two entrepreneurs as parents, I have had first hand experience with building a business from the ground up. I have seen my parents start 5 businesses and all of them are still flourishing. Seeing this happening around me has helped me create a personal goal of becoming an entrepreneur myself. I hope to one day have my own fashion brand that sells globally. However, I know that I first have to get myself into the retail world so I have recently accepted a summer internship offer in a buying and merchandising office in downtown L.A. This opportunity will help me gain the skills to become a successful buyer.

Personal Life

My personal life revolves around my friends and family mainly. I always take them outdoors whether that means camping, hiking, hanging by a lake, or just driving up to a lookout here in Tucson. I also love to use my creative side in my downtime. I make time to paint, read, sketch designs, or even take my camera out in the desert and do a photo shoot with friends.

Go ahead and take a look around! I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little bit better.
