Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt to get a world-class education somewhere rife with opportunities to get involved in policy, politics, and public service. In my two years of graduate school, I was able to do just that, taking classes that interested me -- like Negotiation, Campaign Management, or Poverty and the Social Safety Net -- while meeting amazing people working across DC and interning on campaigns, the Hill, and in political consulting.
What was the best part of your experience? Going to Iowa for the 2020 caucuses through GU Politics and meeting with candidates, political operatives, and journalists for 4 days straight! And really just all the amazing people -- students, faculty, staff, and alumni -- that I met and worked with at McCourt.
What internships did you have during your time at McCourt? I interned at the DCCC, Hilltop Public Solutions, and the House Committee on Ways and Means during my time at McCourt. I also worked as a GA with McCourt Executive Education.
Student organization involvement while at McCourt: McCourt Student Association, Georgetown Public Policy Review, GU Politics
Undergraduate university, degree, and major: I received my BA in English and Media & Culture from Miami University (Ohio) in 2018
Hobbies/ Interests: Going to the movies, traveling, and spending time with friends!
