After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism, I took my passion for storytelling to Washington, DC, where I began my career at a PR agency. Agency life provided a strong foundation in communications, but I ultimately wanted to be closer to business decision-making and part of a cross-functional team. My next role - in corporate communications at GE Healthcare in Chicago - provided just that. With that exposure, I grew to want to supplement my storytelling abilities with hard skills. I came to Ross to pivot my career from PR to marketing and to learn from a diverse, collaborative and inspiring group of peers.
