Executive Vice President, Villanova University

Favorite class at VSB and why?

Introduction to Economics with Professor Gerald Walsh. He taught us to embrace economic concepts and apply them to an individual project that we worked on for the entire semester. He made the Wall Street Journal and Businessweek understandable. I almost majored in Economics after this class!

Most important thing you learned?

You could be successful in business and be moral and ethical. Always do the right thing.

Favorite Villanova memory?

I participated in the junior year accounting internship program. The internship (paid!) with an international accounting firm for second semester junior year was an incredible learning experience. It also provided me with the opportunity to live on campus with my classmates that summer which I had not been able to do as a commuter. I thought the food in Dougherty Hall was excellent!
