Class of 2023

Prior to Ross, I worked in commercial banking at J.P. Morgan in Los Angeles, where I provided lending and advisory services to middle market business owners. I decided to pursue an MBA to hone my technical strategic thinking and leadership skills, and pivot to a role that would allow me to help businesses solve challenges that extend beyond their strictly financial needs. I was immediately drawn to Ross' action-based learning opportunities and collaborative classrooms. However, as I became better acquainted with the community, it was the people that resonated with me most. I'm grateful to be in a supportive environment that challenges me personally and professionally, and surrounded by people who are striving to maximize their potential.

Please feel free to reach out about switching careers, moving from the West Coast (best coast), or the MBA experience in general. Go Blue!
