I graduated from University of California-Irvine in June 2009. Majoring in Criminology, Law and Society with a Minor in Management. I also have a strong background in Mathematics and Physical Sciences through after completing three years of an Electrical Engineering undergraduate degree. Upon graduating I helped to start a local business that we grew into a multi-million dollar company and managed one of the stores as we opened new branches of the company. In 2010 I was hired by Verizon Wireless where I have held roles in Floating Supervisory roles and ultimately ended up in the Financial Compliance division. Working with the Business Sales Compliance team I reviewed transactions nationwide working with SQL database querying and auditing at a national level. My quality work caused me to quickly advance to the Sr. Analyst level working on the Internet Compliance team. In late 2014 I earned my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in Finance though Brandman University. As a Level 2 USA Cycling certified coach I volunteer my time with the University of California - Irvine Anteater Cycling team. I also was a founding member of the Advisory Board for The Prosperity Center, a local non-profit for the Orange County area assisting low income individuals with entrepreneur goals reach their dreams. I left in late 2014 to develop personal business interests.
