Prior to Ross, I spent the last 5 years working with Strategy for retail banking in South America. First, I had a 3-year stint in the strategy team of one of Brazil’s largest banks, and then, I moved to Lima, in Peru, where I helped create a new microfinance bank from scratch. When I decided to pursue an MBA abroad, finding a place with a good balance of experiential learning and a strong community was crucial for me. Ross surpassed my expectations on both.

I’m passionate about fintech and the impact that financial services can have to improve people's lives, even more in underdeveloped/developing countries. On the personal side, I’m an avid traveler and love all kinds of sports.

A lot of people helped me during the process of applying and choosing where to attend. Now, I’m glad to have the opportunity to pay it forward to anyone going through the process. Let’s make the Latino community even stronger! Feel free to reach out with any questions, it’s my absolute pleasure to meet prospective students and help them figure out their next steps.
