Current Job: Business Analyst II at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

Can you begin by updating us on what you have been up to since graduating from Georgia Tech?

Since graduating, I have been working at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta as a Business Analyst II. In this position, I work closely with our board of directors to ensure that they have the resources and information to effectively lead the Bank. I've also been volunteering for the past year with the organization New American Pathways. Through their English at Home program, I have been tutoring a Congolese refugee in English and showing him and his family different areas of Atlanta.

How did Tech and/or the Nunn School help you get where you are in your career?

Tech and the Nunn School gave me the analytical and problem solving skills that companies and organizations value highly. 

What has been a particular impact of studying International Affairs at Tech on your career?

Tech gave me a better understanding of technology and its increasingly important role in the realm of international affairs. Tech's connections with universities throughout the world also allowed me to study abroad, which is a highlight of my time there.

How do you think your internship experience(s) helped you with your career endeavors?

I interned at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta in 2014 and without that experience and the contacts I made, I am certain I would not have received the job I have today. The previous internships I had before it also played a huge role in getting real experience and meeting new people.

What advice would you give current students at the Nunn School?

Definitely study abroad. Once is good, but I wish I would have done it at least twice.
