I am college Senior at Purdue University and studying Accounting, Management, Finance, and Entrepreneurship in the Krannert School of Management. Business writing comes very naturally to me as I have written over 15 business plans for small start-up companies, a large corporation, business plan competitions, and school projects. I have also been the author of several articles published in newsletters and magazines. Over the past two summers, I have completed internships with a global aerospace company, and a Big 4 Accounting Firm, both of which required extensive business writing. In my free time, I enjoy writing fiction.
