Daytime MBA | Class of 2013

 

I was born on the island of Jamaica, and last lived in New York before moving to Durham. I worked at Goldman Sachs after getting my undergraduate degree from Brandeis University.

I like to think that I’m on a never-ending journey of learning and life discovery, so my goal for my time at Duke was to be both reflective and forward looking.

While at Duke I transitioned into the healthcare industry through the Health Sector Management program and got a ton of hands-on experience during my summer internship at a biotechnology firm on the West Coast. I was an active student, involved with the Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership & Ethics (as a COLE Fellow), and was on the cabinet of the Association of Women in Business.
