Richelle Groff isn’t afraid of a challenge. An accounting major, with a minor in international studies, she has experienced a lot a Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.
Richelle has participated in the marching band and both the concert band and brass ensemble. She is a member of the Accounting Club and was treasurer of the Institute of Managerial Accountants.
She’s been just as busy outside of the normal classroom, studying abroad in Australia, where she visited, among other cities, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and even had the opportunity to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef. “It was the most incredible experience of my life. I learned so much about myself while learning and traveling in Australia. It was truly the opportunity of a lifetime and Ship helped me through the entire process,” she said.
Last summer Richelle completed an accounting internship where she learned even more about what it will take to make it in the real world. “I’m not a serious person at all, but I am very focused on my goals. I love having fun and don’t enjoy being stressed out and Ship has let me have it all."
