Class of 2023

Hello from a SoCal native! Prior to Ross, I was a brand manager at a children's toy company based in Los Angeles, California. It was an exciting and fast-paced career, where I worked closely alongside our licensor, Disney, to design, develop, manufacture and market new toys every spring and fall. I came to Ross because while I gained so much from my previous career, I knew there was more out there for me to learn, especially within the realms of finance and sustainability. I wanted to make a career pivot, and I knew Ross would be the business school to provide ample resources, opportunities, and support to guide me along my journey. In my spare time, I love trying new recipes, hiking, and listening to podcasts. Please feel free to reach out to talk about anything from career pivoting, to moving from SoCal, or anything else that will help you along your own business school journey. Go Blue!
