Prior to Ross, I spent the entirety of my life in various places across the great state of New York. I grew up in the suburbs of Long Island, pursued my undergraduate degree at Cornell University, attained a Masters in Public Administration in Health Policy and Management at NYU, and ultimately settled in NYC where I worked for Accenture as a Business Strategy Consultant for over three years. At Accenture, I worked with healthcare providers, payers, and biopharmaceutical companies. I realized that many stakeholders are so focused on "the business of healthcare" that they have neglected the patient. To meaningfully improve healthcare delivery, it is necessary to disrupt the industry and change the existing paradigm. Ultimately, I hope to found my own company focused on delivering patient-centric healthcare solutions. To achieve this goal, I decided to venture out of New York and take my talents to Ann Arbor to pursue my MBA at Ross because I was excited by the action-based learning in academics and extracurriculars, the opportunities offered by "Go Blue, Go Anywhere," and the prospect of a tight-knit community. I felt Ross was the best program to equip me with the business acumen, entrepreneurship skills, financial acuity, and industry knowledge needed to develop a game-changing idea that refocuses healthcare not he patient. Additionally, I was extremely honored to receive the Pinkert Scholarship, to support my interests in healthcare entrepreneurship. Outside of the busy MBA life, I enjoy playing tennis, being active outside and taking in some nature and vitamin D, binge watching shows when the coach seems like the move, and exploring new restaurants. You can pretty much always find me looking for the best sushi in town!
