Describe what you do and how GGC may have played a role to prepare you for success in your job.
I currently work as a paralegal reporting to the VP of Risk Management. My duties include handling an array of legal matters related to hospitality, real estate, insurance and the like. GGC has helped prepare me to excel and advance in my field by instilling great professional and educational values. In addition to the resources provided to me as alumna, while attending GGC during undergrad I was easily able to diversify my learning by studying a variety of areas which contributed to the driven person I am today.

Has your life changed since graduation, and if so, how has earning a degree contributed to that change?
Like others, graduation opens new doors for endless opportunities and achievements. Since graduating, my life has changed by arriving and thriving in an unanticipated career and establishing a family.

Why do you give back to GGC through donations and volunteering your time?
It is vital to give back to GGC with my time and monetary donations because I know my efforts directly affect the success of the next generation of Grizzlies, which is extremely important to me.
