She has worked hard to set goals and monitor the group’s progress, all while managing her academic workload and a spring internship. She will be leaving this organization in a better position as a result of her leadership and endless hours of work this year.”

After she graduates in May 2016, Ionta says she plans to combine her business and psychology knowledge into an HR career.
