“My favorite part of this business is that I am able to really explore the act of mindfulness with these professionals”

“The classes that really helped me prepare for this role was IME. In those courses I learned how to successfully research a company and utilize the databases and research tools provided by Depaul University, and also gained the skills and the lengths of which research details are most important for my client”
