Class of 2023

After graduating with a degree in Finance from Oral Roberts University, I joined Phillips 66 in their Oklahoma office. I spent several years supervising teams, earning my CPA along the way, before relocating to Houston to a financial analysis and forecasting roll for our US Marketing business.
I had known for some time that I wanted to earn an MBA – not only to open new career doors in the future, but to develop and refine the tools that will make me a more meaningful contributor to strategic decisions for our business.  My wife and I recently welcomed twins, so relocating our family to pursue my education wasn’t exactly on the radar.  Fortunately, I came across Ross’ new Online MBA, designed specifically to open the door to Ross’ action-based learning curriculum and high-caliber faculty to aspiring MBAs in situations just like mine.  The Online MBA afforded me the chance to live two dreams – pursue an MBA in a program I love without sacrificing my family and career priorities.  It’s been an excellent decision and I’ve loved every minute of the program!
If you have questions, feel free to connect with me!  Especially those looking to tackle this while balancing time with young kids!
