After completing my undergraduate degree in business marketing, I moved to San Francisco to start my career in digital marketing and after a few years transitioned into market research/advertising effectiveness as a project manager and operations supervisor. For the past 7 years, I have been working in technology consulting as business consultant/project manager/business analyst. Working for a small consulting firm, I have to maintain flexibility to wear whichever hat is needed, but in my current role, I am most invigorated by end-user change management, making complex technology changes appear simple and approachable to those impacted.

After moving to Chicago a few years ago, being in such close vicinity to several excellent business schools, I made the decision to pursue my MBA. I was seeking an accelerated part-time program that allowed me to balance the demands of my personal life and career, while offering many aspects more typically found in full-time programs - the cohort-style where you can really nurture the relationships and learn from a talented and diverse community, the action-based learning, and the exceptional faculty. After all my research and conversations with Ross staff and alumni, it became abundantly clear that the Ross WMBA program was an ideal fit for me, despite the fact that I had never stepped foot in Michigan prior to my interview. The flexibility of the WMBA also allows me to continue working and living in Chicago.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to chat about the WMBA program specially, pursuing your MBA in general, or any other questions you may have! GO BLUE!
