Daytime MBA | Class of 2019


A Tampa native, I lived in New York City for eight years prior to Fuqua. I received my BA from New York University in Global Liberal Studies, with a minor in Social Entrepreneurship. I worked at Accion, a microfinance non-profit in a variety of areas including finance & accounting, grants management, compliance, human resources and project management. I’m passionate about sustainability and financial inclusion and was drawn to Fuqua for the robust social entrepreneurship curriculum and congenial culture.

Fuqua Activities

I am the co-president of the Association of Women in Business, a role I love because it allows me to connect with Fuqua women outside of the classroom. I am also part of Fuqua On Board, serving as a board member at Farmer Foodshare, a local non-profit that helps provide access to produce. For fun, I’m the co-head writer for Fuqua Action News, a satirical news segment that’s part of our quarterly FuquaVision broadcast and am a season ticketholder for Duke basketball.
