How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current position?
Moody taught me how to successfully manage my time to ensure that all tasks and responsibilities are completed on time. As a campaign manager, I am constantly juggling multiple campaigns with different stakeholders, so being able to balance responsibilities effectively is crucial.

What advice do you have for #TEXASMoody students?
Network, network, network. Networking is crucial. The relationships you make with your peers, professors, and colleagues will open doors to new opportunities in your professional career. I found the job I am currently in due to networking on LinkedIn!

The ideas my classmates brought to the table were thought provoking and inspiring. I was constantly challenged to think outside the box.

What do you miss most about Moody College?
I miss collaborating on group projects and engaging in classroom debates. The ideas my classmates brought to the table were thought provoking and inspiring. I was constantly challenged to think outside the box.

What was your first job out of college?
I am currently working at WP Engine as a Campaign Manager and started soon after graduating from UT. I am learning so much about the tech industry, successfully running campaigns from start to finish, and project management.

What classes or professors helped the most?
Jeff Hunt’s class was instrumental in my learning. He taught us all about crisis management. Being a campaign manager, I have had to send out communications about difficult situations to customers. I have implemented the lessons he taught us into my everyday job.
