Alumni Class Leader
B.S. Information Management and Technology ‘07
Excited, motivated and dedicated is the way I feel about helping you with your transition from college to the real world. As a recent graduate from the School of Information Studies with a B.S in Information Management and Technology, the new iSchool has provided me with the tools to ensure my life is spent giving back to all of you. I have grasped the understanding that the combination of information management intertwined with technology is one of the key concepts and assets to businesses and corporations.
My experience in the School of Information Studies was essential for me in developing my personal, interpersonal, and professional skills. All of the faculty, staff, and professors helped guide me on a path that was less traveled and enabled me to find my own niche. It is always important to be an individual and follow your passion…it will be key to your success. Student-run organizations, such as BLISTS, WIT and ISTGO, were also vital outlets in meeting other students, and understanding the importance of networking and interacting with professionals and making new friends.
After graduation, I worked for the NIKE Corporation, with a team dedicated to maintaining the structure and database of the global operation of all NIKE based stores. In 2008, I took a position as Customer Support Advisor/Financial Advisor within Credit Card Services for JPMorgan Chase & Co., always helping our consumers with personal banking business, while providing high quality support for millions of customers who trust the Chase brand.
I look forward to hearing from and offering advice to any alumni, current, or prospective students. I love meeting new people and look forward to ensuring your experience in the School of Information Studies is as enjoyable. Please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
