Prior to Ross, I worked in healthcare consulting for 3.5 years and pivoted into the retail-tech industry, working in strategic sourcing and vendor management at Stitch Fix for 3.5 years. Within months of starting at Stitch Fix, I had the opportunity to walk factory floors and became passionate about creating a more socially and environmentally positive retail industry. I applied to Ross through the Erb Institute at Michigan, so that I could focus on developing both my business skills and knowledge of sustainability. The students who helped me apply to Ross and the Erb Institute along the way were also hugely influential on my decision to choose UM. The support they gave me prior to being admitted blew me away and helped give me a glimpse into the positive, collaborative culture that UM fosters.
