As both a business major and student advocate, Doug learned the importance of effective storytelling while at Elon University. His passion for aiding others culminated with his induction to Omicron Delta Kappa, a 100-year old national leadership honor society. Professionally, Doug has cultivated his analytical and writing ability through internships in the nonprofit, higher education, and private sectors, highlighted by supporting the litigation group at the prestigious WilmerHale law firm in Washington, D.C. Shortly following his graduation from Elon University in 2016, Doug was appointed to serve a two-year term as a Youth Trustee on the Elon Board of Trustees.
