After my freshman year, I transferred to Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. At this institution, I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree, studying topics such as finance, business, and consumer science. Officially established in 1879, Colorado State is home to a plethora of academic programs. The school comprises more than 22,000 students and 116,000 alumni. Situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado State University remains one of the largest research institutions in the nation. More than 4,500 acres of campus land are dedicated to research centers, state forest service stations, and cooperative extension offices.
I graduated from Colorado State University in 1999 with the skills I needed to embark on a successful career in the finance industry. During my final two years of study, I worked for an investor relations firm. Combined with my experience in the field, my education served as a platform on which I was able to start my own company. I have since enjoyed success in many ventures, and I am thankful for the education I received at Palm Beach Atlantic University and Colorado State University.
