“My internship at Ernst & Young was a very unique opportunity because I was able to spend a month working in London. Through my internship experience, I secured a full-time position at Ernst & Young in Manhattan before I graduated with my MBA. Quinnipiac will always hold a special place in my heart for the people it has allowed me to meet and the stories I'll never forget.”
