Class of 2019

Prior to Ross my work focused on leveraging strategies, tools, and partnerships from diverse sectors to prevent childhood obesity within the United States. Through this experience I developed a passion for innovation and leveraging business to create social impact; I came to Ross to expand my skills in these areas and better understand the business side of the impact equation. To that end, I'm pursuing a career at the intersection of technology, user-centered design, social impact, and innovation and interned this past summer as a product manager in San Francisco. As an MBA2 I serve as co-president of Design + Business and recently spearheaded Ross' inaugural Innovation Week. During my first year I competed in the finals of the Michigan Business Challenge Seigle Impact Track and completed two rounds of the Zell Lurie Institute's Dare to Dream program.
