Brief Biography

A native of Syracuse, NY, my family and I moved to Fort Wayne in 1995. I graduated from Homestead High School in 2004 and began my undergraduate studies at IPFW the following spring with the intent of earning a BA in Education. Following the spring 2006 semester, I realized that history was my real passion and began my pursuit of a BA in History in the fall of 2006. As I continued my studies, I became involved with the IPFW Model UN team and served as a delegate to the 2009 and 2010 Midwest Model UN Conferences. After four years of blood, sweat, and tears as a student of the History Department, I had amassed a BA in History, a minor in French, and a Certificate of International Studies.

A versatile individual with a wide assortment of interests and talents, I am currently employed as a pharmacy technician at a local pharmacy as I continue to save money for my Teaching Assistantship post in Orléans, France for the 2010-2011 school year. Upon my return, I will consider my career options, which include graduate school, Peace Corps opportunities in francophone countries, and returning to France.
