I knew a goal of mine during the Michigan Ross Master of Management was to be involved in aiding the missions of nonprofit organizations in the community where I live. The Board Fellowship Program appeared to be, and has been, the perfect opportunity.

Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of helping organize the second annual University of Michigan Science Olympiad tournament, an event that I had helped to plan since last September.

To help me focus my search during the MAP selection process, I decided to use the excel output of projects Ross provides to create a custom view in Tableau — a handy skill I have from my previous career as a financial analyst at The Home Depot.

Coming into the Master of Accounting program at Michigan Ross, I thought I was in for a whole year of learning about crunching numbers and...well, nothing else. After 5 months of some of the most eye-opening courses of my college career, I have been proven wrong.

One of my primary goals coming into business school was to get hands-on experience applying design thinking and innovation strategies to solve problems.  For those unfamiliar with design thinking (or user-centered design), it’s a process for creative problem solving that keeps the end-user of a product or service front and center as problems are defined and solutions are considered.

Three months ago I landed a job at my dream company, Anheuser-Busch InBev. Being a Master of Supply Chain Management student straight out of undergrad, I would have never imagined I’d be offered a leadership role responsible for one of the world’s largest beer productions at such an early age. But, this job did not come easy.

Peer coaches help first-year students foster a great relationship between an experienced Ross student and a first-year Ross student. Freshmen in BA 100 learn that they can come to their coach with questions about anything — from questions related to academics to questions about social life to questions about sporting events at Michigan and everything in between.

On my final drive from Chicago to Ann Arbor, as luck would have it, I hit a mattress on I-94. First thought through my head? I really hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. After calming down, making my husband drive an hour to meet me, calling a tow truck, and figuring out what to do with a mangle mess of coils and fabric — it got stuck underneath the car — I was finally on my way to becoming an Ann Arbor “townie.”

Since I started school (and maintained a part-time work schedule), Erik and I have had to be more intentional to carve out time. We’re both in class or at work, meetings, and events for 12 to 14 hours per day, so we’ve had to find better ways to meal prep, grocery shop, clean (on occasion), and keep up with life.
