Born and raised in the Boston area, I'm so excited to be spending time in the midwest at Michigan Ross! After graduating from Boston College, I spent 5 years focusing on strategic improvement, investment research and client relations at a large bank, a small hedge fund, and most recently at an investments-focused wealth management firm. I've been fascinated by the ways strategic decisions can change the trajectory of an organization, and this passion for problem-solving brought me to Ross. While in business school, I hope to deepen my analytical skill set and refine leadership skills as I transition to a career in strategy consulting. Additionally, sparked by a lifelong interest in healthcare, I hope to learn more about the industry and its intersection with business through a concentration in healthcare management. I chose Ross because of the people: inclusive, diverse, driven, intelligent and fun! The commitment to action-based learning and supportive community described online truly does exist here at Michigan, and the congruence between the school's mission and its reality makes it a very special place. On campus, I've loved involvement in clubs, going to football games at the Big House (ask me about our tailgating traditions!), and spending time exploring Ann Arbor and Detroit. Please feel free to reach out to talk about switching careers, moving from the East Coast, and all things Ross/business school related! Go Blue!
