I grew up in the small town of Blairsville, GA and went to the University of Georgia for undergrad where I majored in finance and minored in communication studies. After UGA, I was a growth strategy consultant at Deloitte where I helped hospitality, sports, and retail clients understand disruptive trends to shape their future state ambitions. I worked on a number of corporate growth strategy, customer experience, and operating model projects through a variety of disciplines such as workshop design, executive communication, and business casing.
I wanted to attend business school to learn more about key strategy principles and understand the intersection between design thinking and innovation. Ross was the perfect fit not only because of the culture and people, but also because of the myriad of opportunities to practically apply your knowledge through hands-on learning.
Outside the classroom, you can find me hiking, exploring the Ann Arbor food scene, and prepping my DJ skills for The Bus, our MBA tailgate. Talking to current MBA students was instrumental in my decision making process, so I am happy to help in any way I can. Go Blue!
