2021-2022 Student Ambassador

Junior

Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA

About Me: I chose the CEM program at Virginia Tech because I fell in love with the fact that this program combines business with construction. I did an internship during my senior year of high school at a concrete subcontractor and loved the entire construction field. I love the people and professors I have met through this program and the overall atmosphere. I joined the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) team where we participate in competitions competing against teams from all over the country. This experience was truly inspiring because it gave me a chance to learn even more about the construction process. I enjoy a team working atmosphere and working outdoors so construction is a perfect fit for me. There is so much that Virginia Tech offers to their students and opportunities such as their career fairs to help students find internships and jobs. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories which I get to do as a CEM Ambassador. Don't be afraid to reach out if you have any questions about the program.
