Prior to Ross, I worked in healthcare consulting in Chicago, advising healthcare systems across the country on their strategies for value-based care and population health. I decided to apply to business school to improve my strategic thinking skills, gain exposure to other industries, and expand my leadership expertise. As a career switcher, I chose to come to Ross for the emphasis on action-based learning and opportunity to gain practical experience during my MBA. Ross and broader University of Michigan community is second to none; the collaborative and supportive atmosphere were so apparent during my many visits and made me confident this would be the right place to pursue my MBA. I grew up a huge Michigan fan, am a triple Wolverine, and could not be happier to be back in Ann Arbor. Go Blue!
