Before Ross, I spent two years teaching high school history and coaching football followed by three years working for an investment advisory firm specializing in endowments and foundations. In my most recent role, I learned about a variety of investment strategies and ways in which investment managers worked with their portfolio companies to help them grow. I spent my summer internship at PepsiCo as a strategic finance intern and will be returning there full-time next summer. Coming from a liberal arts background, I decided to pursue an MBA to sharpen my foundational business knowledge and to transition into a role where I can drive strategic changes in companies. I chose Ross because of its highly engaged, supportive and collaborative community, and because of its emphasis on action-based learning. I'm so excited to be in Ann Arbor and to take advantage of all the opportunities Ross has to offer. Go Blue!
