I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. As a result of my athletic inadequacies, I focused on and fell in love with music. Specifically, I played double bass. My original career ambitions took me to the Juilliard School where I majored in double bass performance. However, as a result of wanting a more liberal arts education, I transferred to and graduated from Wake Forest University with a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese in Political Science. Before attending to business school, I spent the last 8 years of my life living in Denver, Colorado.
Before entering business school, I was a Senior Consultant at Deloitte Consulting. At Deloitte, I completed work in various industries focused on business process design, cost reduction, organizational design, organizational transformation, and operating model design. Additionally, I have worked with executive leadership teams regarding strategic planning, communications, project management, effective governance, and stakeholder engagement. Prior to Deloitte, I spent five years working for two University Presidents in a variety of roles, culminating as Colorado College’s Chief of Staff. After graduating from business school, I plan to focus on the intersection of technology and public policy.
My main passions center on education, closing the achievement gap, and the Arts. Prior to business school, I sat on several non-profit boards whose mission was dedicated to those issues. Currently, I am on the Board of Trustees for Wake Forest University. Additionally, I am extremely interested in how communities can improve economic opportunities for underrepresented minorities. Outside of school, I love a good political – drama TV show. Also, outside of my family, I love nothing more than a good brunch.
