I prefer to teach iteratively with a problem solving approach. One failed first attempt teaches us more about a skill than spending an entire day preparing to solve a problem. You start with the problem to be solved then work through relevant texts to make sense of how to approach and solve this problem. After that, it's iterative repetition with open dialogue about the material.
This teaches critical thinking, an active approach to barriers and a willingness to try at any problem whether one feels prepared or not.
I attended the University of Florida (with a year at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu, China) for a degree in International Studies with a focus on Econ and Chinese. My career path is currently unpaved and winding. Approximately three years of economic development experience at the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, and I'm currently working on a chemical manufacturing startup located in UF Innovate | The Hub.
My professional interests include data analysis (I use R), design, economic writing, market analysis and a passing interest in engineering. I'm always looking for an excuse to practice my mandarin language skills.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER– The Greater Gainesville Chamber – Gainesville FL | Feb 2017 - Present
As an Economic Development Manager my duties were diverse and often adapted to whatever the current needs were. However, my primary functions were: Organizing large committee meetings of politics and business leaders, collect, organize, analyze and disseminate data regarding the community's economic health and needs, interview local businesses to evaluate their business needs and successes, and work on confidential attraction projects to bring in outside companies. Some of my achievements include: working on a team that designed and submitted an attraction document for Amazon HQ 2.0, assembling employment data that is used in publications regarding Gainesville, and assisting in hosting many major Chamber events that brought the region together.
INITIATIVE VOLUNTEER – startupGNV– Gainesville, FL 2018-Present
My time at the Chamber gave me access to amazing volunteer opportunities. I worked alongside the board of a nonprofit called startupGNV—an entrepreneurial organization—to fundraise from our local university, the county and city government as well as regional tech companies a sum of over $100k. The money raised so far is in the process of being invested in a regional workforce initiative to combat a labor drought of specific types of talent.
