Hello! Originally hailing from Cleveland, Ohio and being a Notre Dame alum, I surprised most of my friends and family when I decided that I would be taking my talents to Ann Arbor to pursue my MBA at Ross. While they were surprised, I could not have been more excited at the opportunity as Ross had continuously stuck out for its academic rigor, action-based learning and, most importantly, diverse and welcoming community. The decision to pursue my MBA at Ross, was a combination of research, soul-searching and gut instinct. I realized that in order to progress my career at the pace I wanted, I needed to gain foundational business knowledge and enhance my leadership abilities. I also came to understand how important the environment I chose would be to achieve these goals. The community at Ross is unique and has made my MBA experience thus far truly amazing.
