Why I chose to Intern at Hixon Zuercher

My exposure to a variety of finance classes at Ohio Northern University has prepared me for the Finance Intern position at Hixon Zuercher Capital Management. While at ONU, I had the opportunity to learn about stocks, bonds, investments, different types of risks and returns, diversification, and many other aspects of finance. Lastly, as a member of the Ohio Northern University’s Women’s Basketball team I developed leadership, communication, and teamwork skills that will help me succeed in this new role.
