Prior to Ross I spent 9 years in the Baltimore and Washington DC area, where I attended Johns Hopkins University and worked as a federal healthcare consultant at Deloitte. As a public health major the government healthcare space was a unique opportunity to leverage my academic and policy experience, work with senior government leaders on critical programs, and learn how to tackle strategic business challenges for our clients. While I loved many things about consulting, especially the incredible people that I worked with, I knew I wanted to pursue my MBA in order to expand my business knowledge, grow my technical skillset, and gain hands-on commercial experience in order to expand my future leadership potential within the healthcare market. Originally from the California Bay Area, I figured it was time to try another area of the country and applied largely to MBA programs in the mid-west. Ross was an amazing fit academically, with the opportunity to focus in healthcare management and business/data analytics, and has a unique, diverse, open, and welcoming culture that really felt like home. It's been an amazing experience so far and I'd love to share more about why I chose Ross! Feel free to reach out at any time. Go Blue!
