Living in Atlanta, I didn’t expect to enroll in a MBA program with a commute of over 1,200 miles, round-trip, every other week.  Yet, here I am at Ross in the Weekend MBA program and loving every minute of it!  I'm originally from the Midwest, but moved south to attend college at the University of Miami (Go 'Canes!).  Since graduating, I’ve held roles in equity research and corporate finance, assisting both institutional investors and executives in making significant investment decisions to grow their portfolios and businesses.  These positions provided me with a solid foundation in business fundamentals, but I wanted to pursue an exceptional MBA experience to accelerate my career.  I succeeded in my search by choosing Michigan Ross, an institution renowned for producing "Leaders & Best."

My favorite part about the Weekend MBA program at Ross? It is taking what we learn in class, taught by world-class professors on Fridays and Saturdays, and applying it on the job the following week.  I also really enjoy the cohort model at Ross, as it fosters deep connections with your classmates.  Furthermore, the global alumni network and career development resources at Ross are unmatched and will help me as I pursue the next step in my career.  If you are considering coming to Ross, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any career or school questions
