As I advanced in my career at The Link Group and began to manage my own client accounts I had opportunities to focus on those individual client organizations, which allowed me to better understand their broader strategies beyond the specific marketing research projects on which I was consulting. I realized that I was passionate about problem solving, helping businesses overcome key challenges, and developing overall strategy. However, I also recognized that to do that effectively I would need to refresh my full portfolio of core business skills and continue my leadership development, so I decided that I needed to pursue an MBA. Returning to UNC Kenan-Flagler was ultimately the best choice for me because the school genuinely lives its core values and places a strong emphasis on developing leadership skills. After graduation, I plan to pursue a career in internal strategy or management consulting.
I love spending time with my wife and son at home, add in our three dogs and there is rarely a dull moment! When we have a chance to get away, we like to travel abroad and see new places. I’m also a passionate college sports fan (Go Heels!).
