Why did you chose Walsh?
Walsh University was the perfect college choice for my academic and athletic interests to thrive. I was able to pursue the majors I wanted with professors and faculty who could help me make career decisions.
Describe briefly what you do in your current job:
I currently serve as a Policy Adviser at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security headquarters in Washington, DC in the Office for Civil Rights & Civil Liberties. My primary duties involve advising Department leadership on policy issues at the intersection of civil rights and homeland security. This includes working with other Federal agencies to develop and strengthen the U.S. Government's civic engagement, public outreach, and public diplomacy initiatives.
How did Walsh prepare you for your current job?
Walsh University prepared me for a career in public service with a true values-based education. The professors and coaches prepared with me valuable life skills like critical thinking and problem solving to overcome the many of the challenges of a professional career in government.
What advice would you give to someone who is considering attending Walsh University?
College is a big decision to make, and a university with a rich history and track record of distinction in academics and athletics can have a major impact on your personal and professional life. You can take classes in Math, Science, and English at any college, but you can only be mentored, inspired, and driven to pursue excellence at one place. For me that place was Walsh University.
