I am a junior in the Professional Program of Accounting from El Paso, Texas. I have been a part of TACG since my freshman year, and it has made a profound impact on me. It has shown me multiple facets of the business world beyond consulting. The skills and experiences I have had within the organization have helped me become more than well prepared for my future career. In my free time I love playing sports, cooking all kinds of food, and hanging out with friends!

I’m a senior Industrial and Systems Engineering student. I enjoy doing engineering stuff like fixing problems and solving maths. After joining TACG in spring 2020, I was able to experience real-life applications of topics I learned in the classroom. In the little time I spent engaging with TACG clients, I have been motivated to pursue a consulting career after college. I want to obtain a master’s in data science after I graduate college and then start my own engineering consulting company. My hobbies include playing the saxophone, drums, playing soccer, and watching stand-up comedy.
