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. As employee number two in an organization that grew to have 30+ staff, raise $30+ million dollars, and reach over 11 million children in all 50 states, I had the exciting opportunity to work across organizational functions and apply my skills in areas as diverse as HR, marketing, research, and operations. Through this experience I developed a passion for both entrepreneurship and leveraging business to create social impact; I came to Ross to expand my skill sets in these areas and better understand the business side of the impact equation. Looking forward, I aim to be a social innovation leader who brings relevant partners and novel strategies to the table to address complex societal issues.
