Prior to Ross, I worked for PwC's Management Consulting practice in San Francisco, where I focused on M&A and Finance within the technology industry. While I enjoyed working with different tech companies, I wanted to be closer to the products and technologies that most excited me. I decided to go back to business school to build upon my skill set and make the transition into a product focused role. Since coming to Ross, I added a dual degree at the UM School of Information where I am specializing in data science. I have completed two summer internships: one as a Product Manager at IBM in Austin, TX and another as a Machine Learning Product Manager at Zillow in Seattle, WA. From the beginning of the application process, Ross stood out to me because of its collaborative, team-oriented atmosphere and hands-on learning opportunities. In addition, as a gay woman moving to Ann Arbor with a partner, the culture of diversity and acceptance within Ross and the community at large was a huge differentiator.
