I was born and raised in Austin, TX. I am the second-youngest of 6 children, who are now scattered all across the U.S. I left the South for college, majoring in Near Eastern & Judaic Studies at Brandeis University. After graduation, I worked for several years in the non-profit sector, moving from New York to Los Angeles and back again. As Assistant Director for a prominent young adult leadership program in Los Angeles, I helped double enrollment, securing a sizable endowment from a prominent family as a result. I decided to expand my range of experience and transitioned to private wealth management in 2012, serving as the Branch Operations Manager for an institutional asset management firm in New York City. In addition to my internal operations role, I led educational workshops and consultations for employees of the firm’s retirement plan clientele that drastically increased enrollment and deferral rates. I am pursuing my MBA in order to accelerate my professional growth and increase my impact on society.
I have learned a lot about my interests and talents through my seven years of professional experience. I enjoy the challenge of simplifying complex systems and communicating my ideas in a collaborative style in order to effect change. My immediate objective is to join a management consulting firm that will enable me to deploy these strengths on a larger scale to help organizations capitalize on their primary strategic and operational opportunities. Over the long term, I want to help organizations, teams and individuals collaborate more effectively to develop innovative solutions to society’s most challenging issues.
I have been singing for nearly all of my adult life. Before coming to UNC, I sang with Voices of Gotham, New York City’s premier men’s barbershop chorus. I competed in several international a cappella competitions – most recently at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas – and founded UNC Kenan-Flagler’s first a cappella group, The Confidence Intervals. I am also an avid rock climber, and have visited 42 U.S. states and 16 countries.
