Washington and Lee University

BS, Business Administration and American History

Going to a small liberal arts university was perfect for me. I was able to get to know my professors and really interact with them on an individual basis, whether they were helping me with a project or talking with me about paper ideas. I loved double-majoring in business and history because it taught me the importance of working in teams and knowing how to write, two fundamental skills that will be essential for the rest of my life.

Education

Washington and Lee Fitness Center

Weekend Supervisor

Based on my performance, I was promoted to Weekend Supervisor in September 2013. This position entailed opening the fitness center on the weekends and ensuring that staff arrived promptly to shifts. I also trained new employees on how to greet guests, clean the facility, and take care of equipment, ranging from free weights to cardio equipment. Working at the hub of campus, I interacted with undergraduates, law students, faculty, staff, and alumni on a daily basis.

As an intern in the W&L Communications Department, I built new web pages in the university’s Content Management System during the redesign of the whole website. I worked closely with faculty members and wrote copy for page content, becoming proficient in the MS Office Suite. I also coordinated with my fellow intern in redesigning the online virtual tour and writing copy for the new tour video. I worked with the tour multimedia company to improve the layout and function of the tour.
