Before Ross, I worked in public affairs consulting in Washington, DC. In that role, I developed strategic communications for companies and nonprofits on economic policy issues. I particularly enjoyed helping clients tackle challenging issues and knew that pursuing my MBA would further develop my strategic thinking and analytical toolkit. I'm also passionate about growing the positive social impact of business. Ross stood out as the perfect place to gain hands-on experience, take risks in a supportive environment, and join a diverse community committed to both profits and purpose. I'm originally from Chicago and earned my BA in Public Policy at University of Michigan's Ford School. Go Blue!
