Describe what life was like during your time at Marietta College.
Busy. Hectic. Dedicated. Some things in life never change, except I now I have to do my own dishes – donʼt knock Gilman.
What impact did Marietta College have on your career?
The initiative I took while attending Marietta College and the opportunities that came with had an immediate impact on my career as I landed my “dream job” as a graphic designer for the Chicago Wolves Hockey Team upon graduating. Early on, I approached the art department with my long-term goals and they nurtured these dreams while in the classroom and also by pointing me in the direction of additional opportunities. Working with the Office of College Relations for two years and my nine-month internship with Ullman Design gave me immediate real world/client experience before graduating. This experience paired with a targeted portfolio that offered a range of real world applications helped me to land my initial dream of working and designing in sports. Since then, I have been able to lean on the real experience and practical education to continue pushing my career as I later worked as a project manager for a web and digital start up agency, and now as a designer for Life Fitness, the global leader in the fitness industry.
