Summer 2022 Intern

J.D. Barrett is a senior at Illinois Wesleyan University majoring in Business Administration and minoring in Advocacy.

 

J.D. chose these disciplines to study since he is interested in the administration aspects of advocacy-based organizations, as well as governmental entities.

 

Post graduation, J.D. plans to pursue graduate studies in either Business Administration or Public Administration with hopes of leading an organization towards positive change and outcomes for society.

 

J.D. was drawn to the SBDC because he wanted to further his knowledge in equitable business practices, as well as learn the ins and outs of small business. 

 

Some of J.D.'s passions include running, advocacy, and leadership. In J.D.'s time at IWU, he has been a member of the XC/Track teams, was elected Vice President of the Student Senate, interned with both the Town of Normal and the City of Bloomington's Administration Depts., and has worked for 2 state senators.
