Before you dive into my blog, here's some background information about me: I was born and raised in Avon, Indiana and spent all of my life in the constantly growing suburb. I graduated from Avon High School in 2013 and decided that what I wanted was to stay close to home; yet, I wanted to get the big urban feel of the IUPUI campus. I have a twin brother enrolled at IU-Bloomington and a sister who lives up in Detroit working for General Motors.
I'm a direct admit into the Kelley School of Business-Indianapolis and I'm a part of the IUPUI Honors College and Kelley Honors program. I am currently majoring in Finance and minoring in Economics and I hope to land a financial advising job with the degree. I enjoy the investing aspect of Finance and stocks have always been of interest.
In my free time, I enjoy getting active, being outdoors, and enjoying the beautiful game of soccer. But, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the work environment that my profession will bring. This blog will follow me as I go through the Kelley School of Business. I will be posting about what I've learned and how this information can be used to become a better business student (and a professional).
Pamela Weiss is a 1988 graduate of the Indiana School of Business Bloomington, and a student in the 2013 Fall M.B.A. cohort at the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis. For Pamela, going back for a Kelley M.B.A. is the fulfillment of a goal over 20 years delayed. She built a career in local and state government service, leading to her post as a legislative director in the Michigan House of Representatives. Her background in public policy and political management naturally leads her to an interest in non-profit management and marketing. In her current role as the AmeriCorps Volunteer Resource Manager at IUPUC, she is a liaison to non-profit organizations in Columbus. She plans on sharing about the implications of public policy for business, issues in non-profit management, and the joys and challenges of returning to school in middle-age.
