Daytime MBA | 2020

 

I was raised in Sayville, NY—a small town on Long Island. After completing my undergraduate studies at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, I worked for a software company in Washington, D.C., and Australia for six years.

I attended Fuqua because of its expertise in two functions: corporate strategy and sports business. I loved everyone I met at Blue Devil Weekend (Fuqua’s main events for admitted students), and I was sold. I’m happy to say that Fuqua didn’t disappoint! The school has provided me with many opportunities to work towards my goals, such as rigorous classes, experiential learning offerings, and the Consulting and Media, Entertainment, and Sports (MES) clubs. Thanks to the help of the entire Fuqua community, I graduated in May 2020 with academic concentrations in Strategy and Financial Analysis.

At Fuqua, I was a Coach K. Center on Leadership & Ethics (COLE) Fellow, and a Distinguished Speaker Series Executive Fellow. I was also on the cabinet of the MES club. Outside of school, I enjoy hosting dinner parties, cycling, and watching Duke basketball games. Let’s Go Devils!
