Class of 2023

I was born and raised in Venezuela; and I moved to Ann Arbor from Los Angeles, CA.

Before Ross, I worked for eight years as an Operations Engineer for an Oil and Gas company in Bakersfield, CA. In this role, I was heavily involved in the planning and execution of rig operations and developing digital applications to optimize operations and surveillance processes.

I decided to attend Ross due to the emphasis on action-based learning and the unparalleled strength of the MBA community. Ross students display a fine balance between EQ and IQ. They are incredibly talented, brilliant yet humble, and know how to have fun! Students and alumni are constantly paying it forward to strengthen the community, lead impact projects, and coach classmates to achieve their professional goals.

As a current Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM) member, MLT MBA Prep and PD Fellow, and as a Riordan MBA Fellow, I am passionate about DEI and empowering URM communities through Education.
