As an Economics and Mathematics major, she was lucky to be able to work with professors from both departments and complete a few different research projects, which helped her build the core skills that allowed her to land her first dream job after college. Her experience working at the SLU IT Helpdesk is what has allowed her to establish a reputation as the "in-house IT expert" among her colleagues.
