I grew up outside Boston, and from there, I traveled down the East Coast and attended Georgetown University. After Georgetown, I worked a little over two years in D.C. for IBM doing Federal Consulting and then moved up to New York in February 2020 (phenomenal timing) and joined Altman Solon which is a Technology, Media and Telecom focused strategy consulting firm. I really loved doing the strategy work but wanted to have more say in what ultimately got implemented than consultants typically have. Consequently, I started thinking about business school and a career switch. I looked for schools that were: very strong academically, outside big cities (for the tight-knit culture), strong in tech, and supportive of partners. Ross truly checks each box. The community at Ross is better than I imagined and The Big House is quite fun! I had an awesome interning at American Express where I was on the lounge product strategy team! I am happy to talk about the community, consulting, tech, partners, or anything else!
