Morgan Bagovich – Senior, Business Management Accordion Closed
Hello! My name is Morgan Bagovich and I am a senior majoring in business management with a certificate in non-profit entrepreneurship. I chose NAU because of my love for Flagstaff and the opportunity to be living in the mountains. I am originally from Ohio, but I currently live in Boulder City Nevada. This is my first semester as an ambassador and I am very excited to be able to help my community!
When I am not working, I am usually hanging out with friends or exploring Flagstaff. I love going to different coffee shops to do homework and try new drinks. When I have time, I also try to go on road trips around Arizona to check out the different towns that are close by.
I look forward to this semester and to what it has to offer! Please feel free to stop by or call if you need any assistance during my office hours!

Aside from being an FCB Ambassador, I am also a part of the club ProSell and the sorority Gamma Phi Beta. Both of these organizations have brought me amazing people and experiences! I also love the outdoors, going on walks, hanging out with my friends, trying new restaurants, listening to music, and creating art!
Being a Business Ambassador this year, I am more than excited to get to know my fellow FCB peers and faculty. I am always available to give a helping hand, and cannot wait to provide advice and mentorship to aid in anyone’s academic or career goals.
Sheree Denotsosie – Senior, Accounting Accordion Closed
Ya’ah’teeh, my name is Sheree Denetsosie, and my clans are Tsedeshgishnii, Tá’chi’nii, Kia‘ani, and clá’chi’i. I am a senior accounting student at the Franke College of Business. I am proud to be on track to becoming one of the many Denetsosies to graduate from NAU!

This is my first semester serving as an FCB ambassador and I am so excited to contribute to the wonderful atmosphere of NAU.
Outside of my academic life, I have many hobbies and interests that are constantly growing and changing. Some include lacrosse, playing guitar/ukulele/piano, reading, crafts, spending time outdoors, bouldering, and hanging out with my friends.

Mason Williams – Freshman, Business Management Accordion Closed
Hey there, my name is Mason Williams and I’m an FCB Ambassador. I’m from the state of Washington and am currently a student at NAU. Since I was a kid I’ve always been fascinated by the business world and knew from early on that it’s where I belong, especially with my parents both having business-oriented careers. My mom is a stock broker which rubbed off on me quite a bit and my dad owns an insurance company that taught me a lot about numbers. I hope to use what I’ve learned to help other students as is my duty as an ambassador, but I also strive to further my education and career. I also look forward to meeting new people and finding new opportunities. Thank you for reading and if you need me just send an email.
