Daytime MBA | Class of 2021

 

I grew up and attended college in Atlanta, GA. After a childhood of voracious learning and lecturing my family at the dinner table, I leaned in to my destiny and became a high school English teacher, working in both public and independent schools.

A Durham resident (and lover) since 2014, I decided to pursue an MBA at Fuqua because I wanted to transition my career. I knew that Fuqua, through experiences inside the classroom and out, would equip me with the business skills I’d need to make the change. Furthermore, I knew that at Fuqua, I would find the kind of curious and decent people that I want to build both a professional network and lifelong friendships with.
