Class of 2018

Before coming to Ross, I worked in the nonprofit world—in-house at a women’s advocacy organization, and for several years in nonprofit consulting. I’ve always gotten a lot of satisfaction out of working to improve lives, and was increasingly interested in the intersection of business and social impact. I came to Ross to gain the quantitative and management skills, broad network, and unique experiences that would help me make a bigger difference through business. Focusing on the healthcare industry was a natural fit because of the enormous opportunities for improving lives at scale within healthcare and life sciences. Pursuing my MBA at Ross has been a transformative experience (especially MAP, which brought me to India to help launch an innovative cardiac device for underserved populations!) among an incredibly dynamic and supportive group of leaders.
