Class of 2022

Before Ross, I served as executive director of a civic leadership organization, CiviCO, with a mission to develop leaders across all sectors to create a better Colorado, delivered through innovative leadership programs. Getting paid to help others become better leaders for the good of our state was incredibly rewarding, and I realized it was time to invest that same energy in myself. I chose Ross for its purpose-driven approach to business, the people and culture, and to hone new skills to pivot to the private sector through consulting. Ross was the best place to make that pivot to accelerate my career while keeping a mission-driven approach. The people are by far my favorite part of Ross: in no other place will you find such impressive-yet-humble leaders who are going to change the world. I love outdoor activities, exploring local coffee shops and breweries with my fiancé, playing recreational sports, and all things Colorado! Feel free to reach out with any questions, starting an MBA from a nonprofit background, or anything else!
