When I was in school, I never really thought much about what my professional bio would say. Up until now, I never really needed one. Aside from the short blurb on my Twitter page (where I went to college, what I do for a living, what kind of food I like), I didn’t have a reason to write anything about myself and my accomplishments. When I started my job at JWU and was finally asked to write a short bio, I had no idea where to start because I didn’t know what the vibe was. Should it be long, formal and resume-like or should I include my love for social media and my cat?

As a student finishing up my undergrad, I hated group projects. I, an English major, preferred to buckle down and get whatever project or paper I was assigned finished on my own. But as a business minor, I found myself in courses that were completely different from my literature classes. As it turns out, business professors loved to assign group work — or that’s how it seemed to me. In my groups, I often found myself volunteering to write whatever assignment we were given in exchange for less face time during a presentation or less number-crunching during a finance project.
