After my undergrad studies at Saint Mary's College and a grad degree at the University of Oregon, I moved to New York to pursue a career as an advertising strategist, where I've been able to help brands like State Farm, the NFL, Google, Bud Light, and McDonald's connect with consumers in culturally relevant ways. While much of my time in advertising has allowed me to be a cross-functional partner, I ultimately want to become the brand manager who owns the go to market process end-to-end. This led me to Ross, where I'm gaining skills to become a CPG Food/Beverage brand manager through the Weekend MBA program all while working at Wieden+Kennedy in New York. I decided on Ross based on the cohort-driven Weekend MBA program, experiential learning opportunities, and its connections to companies within the CPG space. Feel free to reach out about anything - Michigan sports (Go Blue!), commuting from (far) out of state, or the culture of the WMBA program.
