Why are you a CIT Student Council Member?

I am a CIT Council Member because I want to represent the voice of student’s who may not be heard and make the council more accessible to the student body to ensure that we are taking direct action in response to student’s needs.

What other activities are you involved in on or off campus?

At school, I am an active board member of Women in Cybersecurity. Besides this, I am also a part of Women in Technology, AITP, and the Computer Science Women’s Network. Outside of being a student at Purdue, I am a RTC Fellow and work for a startup in Lafayette Indiana called IronCloud Technologies.

Where do you want to be/ what do you want to be doing in 10 years?

After I graduate college I would like to be working as a CyberRisk Consultant.

Why did you choose the Polytechnic Institute?

I chose the Polytechnic Institute because I wanted a more hands on and collaborative education.
