A native Californian, I came to Ross after spending five years as a healthcare consultant in San Francisco. And while I've never lived in a place where it snows, I couldn't be more excited to go through new experiences with classmates who have already made Ann Arbor feel like home. After working with a variety of hospital clients through complex problems and local Bay Area social impact organizations as a pro bono consultant, I decided to pursue an MBA to better equip myself to fulfill Ross's mission of using business as a force for positive change. Everyday, I'm afforded the opportunity to witness my classmates' commitment to this mantra and to one other - it's this authentic warmth and inclusiveness that drew me to Ross and continues to inspire me. I'm humbled to be a part of this tight-knit and supportive community, and I hope to pay it forward to those who are interested in joining. Go Blue!
