Why I chose my major

I applied to UGA as a biology major with pre-med intent, but quickly realized before attending that it was not my passion. I spent my first semester of college undecided and met with the Career Center to discuss becoming a finance major. I was interested in finance because I grew up watching my mom manage her stock portfolio and all my family members’ portfolios. When I met with the Career Center, I told them about my desire to work with people and help people, and they suggested financial planning. After comparing the two majors, I knew that financial planning was definitely the place for me.

What I like most about FACS

It is hard to choose just one favorite thing about FACS. I always brag about how great my college is to my friends. From the fantastic advisors to the dedicated professors, I know that everyone at FACS truly wants to see me succeed. FACS has a wonderful culture of support, community and growth that I am so grateful I got the opportunity to experience.

Post-graduation plans

After graduation, I will pursue my master’s in behavioral financial planning here at FACS. After completing that, I have accepted an offer to work as an associate at Homrich Berg Wealth Management in 2025.
