Daytime MBA | Class of 2013

 

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, and am proud to be a Southerner (although I have no accent)! I graduated from Emory University with a bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) with concentrations in marketing and finance. After graduating, I worked at Deloitte Consulting in the Human Capital practice for nearly 6 years before making the leap to business school!

I chose Fuqua because I really enjoy the team environment. Fuqua is like a big family, and it is an inclusive environment where you can just be yourself and focus on things that matter to YOU. During my first year, I was a cabinet member of the High Tech Club and Distinguished Speaker Series. I was also a member of the General Management Club, FuquaVision, and Marketing Club, and I participated in the COLE Leadership Cohort Experience. Over the summer, I had a wild and extremely fun internship at Facebook where I was first exposed to the high tech industry. Then during my second year, I concentrated on being a COLE Leadership Fellow and an Admissions Fellow.
