Class of 2020

After graduating with my bachelor’s degree in engineering from Michigan State University, I first began my career in the food and beverage industry, but quickly joined Shinola Detroit in 2015, manufacturing luxury consumer goods.

I have held multiple manufacturing leadership roles while working for Shinola, and I truly enjoy the combination of managing manufacturing processes and team management. As I've continued to grow in my career, working with diverse and cross-functional teams, I’ve realized that further education is a critical component to reaching the next level.

I’m grateful to be a part of the Michigan family, and excited to be surrounded by the brilliant minds of my fellow Ross MBA students. Michigan was the perfect choice for me, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience with others.
