Current position: Ph.D. Candidate at Wayne State University
Major at EMU: Sociology with a minor in Philosophy
I chose to get the Certified Nonprofit Professional credential because I always intended to work in the nonprofit field as board member or employee. NLA helped me develop both an amazing professional skill set and network. I enjoy any type of nonprofit service work “in the trenches”.
My favorite part of being in the NLA was attending all the conferences and workshops. Experiential learning in college is so important. Having a purpose or meaning in life is far more important than the money. I am so grateful for the opportunities NLA gave me!
What advice do you have for NLA students as they graduate from EMU?
Networking is it! It's all about who you know, getting out there and taking risks.
