Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Maria and I am a native Midwesterner who made my way to UofM from San Francisco. I worked in the tech sector for seven years prior to coming to Ross, most recently managing business development teams for the past five years. I'm excited to work in the Venture Capital space after Ross; the student funds and organizations were huge reasons why I chose Ross. When I'm not in "career" mode, you can find me enjoying the great outdoors, reading a good book, or scoping out a new wine. In another life, I'd be a contestant on the Great British Bake-off. Community, culture and the opportunities are why I chose Ross and I'm happy to share my B-school journey with you.
