Aaron is the VP Executive for this year’s team. He is an Operations Management major heading into his 5th and final year. This is his 3rd year participating in JDC West - he was also a Sochie and has done his fair share of cases. Both experiences were incredibly different but both had a large impact on his undergrad. Now he is returning hoping to help lead the team to an amazing year that is both fun and educational. When he is not doing JDC West stuff (which is rare), he loves board games, running, volleyball, and making buttery excel spreadsheets.
