I grew up in San Diego, and for 18 years, “home was where the beach was.” I went to UC Berkeley for undergrad and earned a dual degree in mass communications and business administration from the Haas School of Business. Then I spent 3 years as a financial statement auditor at PricewaterhouseCoopers in San Francisco, before moving to New York to do Investor Relations for Alcoa.
In NYC, I linked up with a friend from Berkeley and we began a side project called Destination Luxury, which is a marketing media company catering to the luxury space. The experience was phenomenal and gave me access to some of the most exclusive events around the world! It also instilled in me a love for marketing. So, I decided to go back to school for my MBA, to gain exposure to the industry and further enhance my skills.
My Fuqua experience more than exceeded my expectations. I have grown professionally and personally, and enjoyed my time here to the fullest. I was heavily involved with FuquaVision and Career Fellows.
