Class of 2021

After working in a niche area of consulting for over four years, I wanted to move into a role in which I would have a more forward-looking strategic focus and the opportunity to build and ship consumer-facing products from the ground up.To do so, I knew I needed to get my MBA in order to build the skills to be successful in understanding customers and translating that understanding into a commercially-viable product.At Ross, I've been able to tailor my experience to best achieve these goals.Through the Zell Lurie Dare to Dream grant for new venture formation and the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital club's Catalyst program, I am able to flex my product-building muscles by using Ross resources to design and hopefully launch my idea for a mental health platform.In addition, I knew I wanted to go somewhere where I would also be able to prioritize having fun. As proud member of Risky Business, the Ross MBA band, I'm glad to be able to entertain classmates throughout the year!
