I was born and raised in Evansville. I went to the University of Southern Indiana, and graduated in 2014 with a degree in Public Relations and Advertising. Right before I graduated, I had the opportunity to meet with some folks here at Old National Bank, and we started talking about what I could do with my life. Since my spinal cord injury in 2006, I’ve been very passionate about disability related causes — helping people and working with not-for-profits such as Easter Seals Southwest Indiana, which is right here in Evansville. And, I had the opportunity to talk with Ron Hagy, who is the Talent Acquisition Manager at Old National Bank. We just had a lovely conversation about different things in life and pursuit of what I might want to do next. I shared my passion of helping people with disabilities. And that — somehow, someway — lead to a position here at Old National Bank where I concentrate each and every day to increase employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
