After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Psychology, I worked as a data manager and then an analytic consultant at a healthcare consulting company based out of Ann Arbor. A few successful years later, the company ended up getting acquired by IBM and during this time I started to gain more exposure to careers within operations and technology. Fast forward to today, where presently I work at Amazon as a Program Manager facilitating global program implementations within the HR space.
Pursuing an MBA at Ross has been a long-time goal of mine ever since I completed my undergrad at U of M, and after 8 years of professional work I decided that it was time to start my application process last year. I knew that I wanted to continue working while I was studying, which is what led me to begin exploring the Ross WMBA program. I must say, the program is set up perfectly to accommodate working professionals. So far, my favorite part of this experience has been meeting everyone. It’s fantastic interacting with peers who work in a wide range of industries. Networking, learning from one another, and hearing how others are applying those learnings in their day-to-day is invaluable to me.
Post-MBA, I'd like to transition into a small & medium business brand/product marketing management role; designing and operationalizing strategic acceleration plans to help small & medium businesses scale.
