What clubs/organizations are you involved in?

Premium Blend, an all-female a cappella group (music director)

Have you been engaged in research, internship opportunities, student teaching, or conferences?

I did an internship at Round Hill Music in Nashville, Tennessee, doing sync licensing. I learned about music use in movies, on TV, and in advertisements and loved my experience! I got this internship with the help of a personal mentor of mine, Phil Blackman, a professor in the business school.

What is the best class that you’ve taken and why?

The best class I’ve taken at IC is Fundamentals of the Music Industry, taught by Phil Blackman. This sparked my interest in the music industry and has helped to lead me on the professional path I find myself on.
