Class of 2022

Prior to coming to Ross, I covered U.S. military and national security issues from the Pentagon as an ABC News reporter. The role took me to 18 countries across 4 continents, flying with secretaries of defense and state as one of a handful of journalists invited to travel with these senior leaders. While at the Pentagon, I developed a passion for the topics I was covering and considered a transition directly into the aerospace/defense or technology industries, but I knew the MBA would provide a holistic understanding of the business world, along with the technical skills and network I desired to optimize a career change. My summer internship was in product marketing with Microsoft, and I will be returning full-time after graduation! In Ann Arbor, you can find me discovering new running trails and exploring the downtown restaurant scene. Go Blue!
