Actuarial Mathematics, 2007

Senior actuarial associate for Prudential Financial in New Jersey

In 2010, I applied for a job in one of Prudential's international offices and spent 13 months living and working in Milan, Italy. I took advantage of my weekends and vacation days and ended up traveling to 29 countries, which helped expand my knowledge of the world around me.

In college, I was triple-majored in actuarial mathematics, mathematics and economics, all while being captain of the swim team and a founding sister of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority and president of my class. These experiences taught me a great deal about professionalism, discipline an d hard work. I also was honored as the College's 56th winner of the Chieftan Award, the highest honor given to a graduating senior.
