Class of 2022

After eight years in a variety of Sales and Operations roles at PepsiCo, two of those years post-MBA, I decided to make a career change. I now work as an associate at an independent Registered Investment Advisor in Skokie, Illinois. We provide comprehensive financial planning and investment management services for our clients. I am happy to help anyone that is contemplating a career change while navigating through their MBA journey.
I pursued an MBA to enhance my business skill set, learn from intelligent classmates and outstanding professors, and ultimately accelerate my career.  I can say from experience that the University of Michigan truly represents the Leaders and Best, and that was the type of community I wanted to join for business school.  The Weekend MBA program allowed me to continue developing within my professional career while obtaining a world-renowned business school education.  I have been fortunate to immediately implement the skills I have learned in the classroom and through various action-based learning assignments to my career.  I am motivated and inspired every time I step on campus and always enjoy discussing what makes the Ross Weekend MBA Program such a special opportunity.
