Class of 2023

I'm originally from the suburbs of Los Angeles and went to Wash U in St. Louis for undergrad. After graduation, I moved to NYC for an internal strategy role at a research firm called AlphaSights. I was responsible for managing large due diligence projects across the private equity and consulting verticals. This experience made me realize that I wanted to be on the investor side, so I came to Ross with the intention of pivoting into venture capital. I felt that an MBA would provide the network, business acumen and technical skills I needed to make a successful career change. I chose Ross for the hands-on learning opportunities and amazing people/culture that the school offers. In my spare time, I love running, listening to podcasts, and cooking Korean food. Go Blue!
