Elizabeth Loiselle

Class of 2015
Major/Minor: International Relations & Hispanic Studies / Economics & Latin American Studies

As an undergrad at Washington College, I was a double major in International Relations and Hispanic Studies with a minor in Economics and concentration in Latin American Studies.

WAC gave me a lot opportunities that I am grateful for – I was able to do three internships, study abroad and conduct a research project in South America to supplement my two senior theses, which was an incredible experience for me. Not only did I enjoy my courses and professors, but I was truly challenged and I became a much better student and worker because of it (big shout out to Dr. Wade for pushing my ideas for my thesis!).

In result of all of the opportunities I was able to be involved in, I graduated Washington College a semester early in December 2014. After graduation, I moved home to Atlanta, GA while job searching and took part in a Harvard Business School online program (called HBX Core – Business, Economics and Accounting) for 4 months.

Soon after, I was hired at Blackbaud, a software company that works with nonprofits, as a consultant. I began my career in Washington DC and in August 2015 moved to Austin, TX. My job has allowed me to travel to places I never expected to, which is part of the reason why I enjoy it. I also love it because I get to meet a lot of new people and solve problems with creativity on a daily basis.

I plan on getting my Masters within the next few years and hopefully move forward in my career at Blackbaud.
