After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism, I took my passion for storytelling to a PR agency in Washington, DC. Agency life provided a strong foundation in communications, but I ultimately wanted to be closer to business decision-making and part of a cross-functional team. My next role - in corporate communications at GE Healthcare in Chicago - fulfilled those goals. However, I found myself wanting to drive versus just communicate strategy. I came to Ross to pivot my career from PR to marketing, gain additional hard skills, and learn from a diverse, collaborative and inspiring group of peers.
