What do you want your potential employer to know about you?

I'm a confident, extremely hard-working and competitive person. I am a natural leader, who likes to motivate others and help create a positive and enjoyable atmosphere. I possess the qualities of perseverance, dedication, and commitment. I push myself above and beyond my potential and I strive to achieve my goals no matter what obstacles stand in the way. I have the heart, drive and passion to reach any goal I set, it may be challenging, but it is always attainable. Being a Captain of my Division One Soccer Team for the past 3 years had been a rewarding experience both on and off the field. I have learned so much about myself and teammates. Playing sports my whole life has taught me not only the true meaning of teamwork but valuable life lessons that I would not have learned otherwise.


I will be graduating from Marist College in May 2011. I'm a Finance Major with a minor in Accounting and have an overall GPA of 3.90. I strive to do my best in all that I do whether it is in the classroom, out on the soccer field or out in the community; there is nothing better than seeing the benefits of your hard work. I have earned many accolades for my accomplishments on the field and in the classroom.
