Prior to Ross I worked in strategy consulting in the public sector, advising our nation's intelligence agencies on how to operate more like agile businesses. I worked on a wide range of projects, but began to realize that no matter the problem at hand, an empowered team and effective leadership were necessary for success. I decided to pursue an MBA to evolve my personal leadership style, pursue my passion around building successful teams, and explore new avenues to accelerate my impact beyond government. Ross, with its focus on positive organizational scholarship and commitment to using business to drive social change, was the obvious answer. From the start, Ross stood out as a place where community values weren't simply posted on the website, but where those values came to life in every interaction I had with students, alumni, and staff. Now, I am beyond thrilled to be a contributing member of that community. Go Blue!
