Major: BS Computing and Security Technology (Minor: Computer Crime; Concentration: Computing Security) and MS Information Systems

Year: Pre-Junior

Hometown: Audubon, New Jersey

I chose this major because... I discovered my interest in computers and technology while pursuing an associates degree in computer-aided drafting and design. With a degree in computing and security technology as well information systems I will be prepared to have a variety of options in the computing and technology field.

Favorite Course(s): INFO151: In this class we learned how to create a basic functioning website. For the final project we are able to be creative while designing a website within guidelines. I loved being able to design a website that included my personal interests.

Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: N/A

Co-ops I've done:

  • Cyber Security eDiscovery Analyst, Bristol Meyer Squibb, Princeton, NJ (Current co-op)

Favorite thing/place at Drexel: The Rush Garden. The garden is peaceful and beautiful. It is a great place to relax or do some homework.

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... Exploring center city, home in New Jersey hanging out with my dogs, family and friends, cooking and baking or down the shore in the summer.

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Take advantage of restaurant week, go to Rittenhouse square’s weekend morning farmers market, visit the franklin institute and get ice cream at The Franklin Fountain.

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: If you feel like you are struggling, get help. Your advisor can be your lifeline. They can answer almost any question you have or send you somewhere if they cannot. Also get your work and studying done before you go hangout with friends. The ten week terms come and go very fast. Lastly explore as much as you can. This city is a beautiful place and has tons of great restaurants.

What is your dream job? To be part of the security team at NASA

Favorite Animated Character: Minnie Mouse
