Class of 2023

I've spent the past several years in the non-profit sector, most recently at the Obama Foundation, where I focused on strategic partnerships and community engagement for the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago. Prior to that, I worked at a policy research center, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, alongside researchers who improve the lives of vulnerable communities through data-driven recommendations to policymakers. I decided to get my MBA to develop a theoretical framework and the discrete skills—as a leader and decision maker—to add value to organizations that inspire me and bring benefit to others. Ross's emphasis on social impact and sustainability stood out as I explored business schools, and is ultimately what brought me to Ann Arbor. Please reach out! I'm happy to answer any questions about Ross, Midwest winters (they're not that bad!), or anything else on your mind during the application process.
