Weekend Executive MBA | Class of 2016

 

Currently, I serve as a product marketing manager for the largest energy provider in the state of Kentucky, LG&E and KU Energy. My role allows me to market a portfolio of energy efficiency products and work on initiatives that enhance the customer experience of our 1.2 million customers.

I started my career serving in various marketing and sales management roles at Jack Daniel’s parent company, the Brown-Forman Corporation. From there, I spent a couple years at Humana Inc., where I conducted strategy work while learning to navigate the complexities of healthcare reform.

My professional experiences helped me discover that I am passionate about developing a big-picture strategy, influencing others, and collaborating with a diverse group of people to drive change in an organization. My leadership experiences instilled a growth mindset, a substantial tolerance for risk, and a natural instinct to develop others.

While pursuing my MBA at the Fuqua School of Business, I hope to build off of all these experiences by mastering my leadership abilities, becoming equipped with the necessary skills to create a greater social impact in my community, and learning how to implement the positive management practices that will shape how business is conducted across the globe.
