Over the past few years I have consulted numerous MBAs looking to start tech careers or shift into different roles or companies.

When Dayna got into Ross, it was a bittersweet moment for me.  I was incredibly proud of my partner.

I was building my own career in New York City, and relocating wasn’t an option for me personally or professionally.

My friends warned me that living in a small college town in a Midwestern state would be very different, and I’d at best be tokenized as one of a handful of LGBTQ individuals and at worst be in a community rife with latent homophobia.  Thankfully, reflecting on my first year at Ross, I realize that couldn’t be further from the truth.
