Class of 2018

Prior to starting the Weekend MBA program at Ross, I held several roles in public relations and marketing communications: everything from internal and leadership communications, to government relations, to the management of a charitable foundation. Several of those roles also required extensive travel, including an international assignment in China. Those experiences cemented my passion for working across and connecting global teams.

As I mapped out my career aspirations, I soon realized I would need an MBA to gain experience outside of marketing communications and further my ability to work globally. I chose Ross specifically because I knew the program's reputation would be recognized across any region I may choose to work or live. Upon graduating Ross, I successfully pivoted my functional focus to partnerships and business development, working in the autonomous vehicle (AV) industry. My dual focus on entrepreneurship and operations while at Ross enabled me the requisite breadth of knowledge to go on to operationalize the world's first and largest commercial, autonomous ride-hailing deployment available to the public. Since then, I've also gone on to define and deploy the ride-hailing strategy for the leading US AV player, and I now lead partnerships and business development for an AV company based in London.
