As managing director of Fuqua’s Center for Energy, Development, and the Global Environment (EDGE) I design and direct new education and thought leadership programs, manage operations, and connect MBA students with classes, project opportunities, career support, and other resources to help them pursue their interests in the energy and sustainability sectors.

I play an instrumental role in the strategic direction of EDGE's industry- and student-oriented offerings. In particular, I manage the ClimateCAP initiative, a partnership of 20-plus business schools advancing education about the business risks of climate change, and serve as the managing editor of the innovative MBA EDGE thought leadership platform.

I received my BA from Davidson College and MBA from the University of North Carolina (UNC). I’ve spent more than 15 years in university and nonprofit administration, including previous roles as executive director of the Center for Sustainable Enterprise at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and president of the North Carolina Sustainability Center. I authored the book “Profession and Purpose: A Resource Guide for MBA Careers in Sustainability,” am an active speaker at business schools around the country on energy and sustainable business careers, and have counseled hundreds of students on their individual career paths.
