Why I chose my major

 After starting at UGA as a pharmaceutical science major, I had the mentality that helping people could only be accomplished through healthcare. Once I found the financial planning program and realized that I could help in other ways, I knew I had found exactly what I didn't know I was looking for.

What I like most about FACS

I love that FACS has the most supportive faculty on campus!

Post-graduation plans

I will be starting a job as an associate financial advisor at Elwood and Goetz in Athens.
