Class of 2021

Born and raised in Evanston, IL, I am proud college townie, however, I am happy to trade in that status to be a student at Ross. After graduating with a degree in neuroscience, I moved to Washington, DC to pursue health policy research. At Mathematica Policy Research I worked in a variety of project areas including Learning Systems for Accountable Care Organizations, electronic clinical quality measures and improving interoperability in hospitals' electronic health records. I was fortunate enough to work on projects related to my long-time interest in behavioral and mental health. My love for the objectivity and research-based results led me to pursue an MBA. I hope to translate my scientific mindset to the business world by expanding my data analytics skillset as well as gaining meaningful leadership experience. In my free time, you can find me watching whatever's airing on HBO (or The Great British Bake Off), walking briskly around Ann Arbor, or eating at one of many fine eateries about town (Panera counts).
