Class of 2023

A Jersey girl through and through, I've spent the last 10 years up and down the East Coast as I pretended to be a Southern Belle at Elon before settling down in our nation's capital for work. I've called Deloitte Consulting home for the past 6 years, and I couldn't have imagined starting out my career anywhere else (I seriously drank the Kool-Aid!!) I love helping people and solving problems, which made Consulting an easy industry to go into straight out of undergrad. I was lucky enough to experience both our Federal and Commercial practice, advising some of our most senior executive clients through large technology transformations and strategic endeavors. But, as an avid chef, baker, and follower of too many food blogs/Instagram influencers, my true passions lie with food. Allowing my creative soul to break out of its corporate constraints, I knew an MBA would provide the opportunity for me to experience the strategic brand education and internship I never had. Putting a pause on my career, I'm here to take time for myself to learn, grow, and explore while expanding my network and refining my passions of food and wine in the best community: the Ross Community. While initially interested in Ross because of the action based learning program and the school's commitment to making an impact through business, the people have continued to make this experience both pre-enrollment and now as a student THE most memorable. Aside from my club involvement, I love hanging out with my section (Section 1=Section Fun!), exploring AA, and soaking in all the experiences I can post-COVID. Hit me up to chat about Consulting, why Ross, Brand Management, food/wine, and how you too can follow your passions and dreams. I'm so excited to share my story and help you in any way I can as you carve your path and continue your own journey. Go Blue!
