Daytime MBA | Class of 2020

 

I am originally from Chicago, but I now call Atlanta home. I went to the University of Georgia and after graduation joined AmeriCorps in San Francisco. When I finished my term of service, I moved to Atlanta with my then boyfriend, now fiancé.

Most recently, I worked in financial services marketing. I worked on segment marketing and found myself in meetings wanting to contribute my own projections founded in business strategy. I chose Fuqua because I was impressed with the core curriculum structure and the Team Fuqua spirit.

Activities at Fuqua

I serve as the health and wellness chair on the Section 1 cabinet. I have the pleasure of sharing health recipes, fitness classes, and wellness tips. I am an active member of the General Management Club and led the fall Week in Cities trip to Atlanta. As part of the Association of Women in Business, I sat on the Weekend for Women taskforce. I am also involved with the Wine Club and the Fuqua Buddies program.
