A little background information about me: I was born and spent most of my childhood in Indianapolis until I moved to Fort Wayne. There I graduated high school and decided I wanted to be back in my hometown for college. I have two younger bothers and a (mischievous) chocolate lab named Jag.

In this blog, I will write a series of blogs that will show what I am learning from my undergrad and how I apply it to my internship, or vise-versa. Enjoy reading!
