Concentration: Government Relations, Immigration & Latin America Regional Focus

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA where I attended the University of Pittsburgh (Hail to Pitt!) for my bachelors. I graduated in December 2016 with a degree in Spanish, Portuguese, and Natural Science.

I am fascinated by federal relations and how the government connects to corporations, non-profits, and other groups and organizations. After spending significant time in Latin America during my undergraduate, Latino immigration is another focus of mine here in the School of International Affairs. SIA has given me a flexible opportunity to explore all of my interests and incorporate them into my future career.

SIA has presented me with fantastic networking and career exposure opportunities, as well as fantastic faculty. I hope to be able to pursue a career in government relations for a Latin American based company. Please feel free to contact me with anything, I am more than happy to answer any questions.
