  • Long Snapper on Football team

  • Currently working 2nd internship with Citi Smith Barney

  • Excerpt from Work Report

    • After working with Citi Smith Barney, it made me realize that this could be the perfect fit for me. As a financial adviser/broker, you get to work hand in hand with you clients building relationships and gaining trust of individuals. It is a lot more personable than I first thought. It helped me realize what I want to do for a career and the steps it takes to get there.

  • Excerpt from Work Report

    • I was a realty service student trainee who worked directly with a Realty Specialist. I worked on leases in the North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee territories. This internship has given me insight on dealing with leases. I want to go into property management, and this is giving me a head start.
