I was born and raised outside of Chicago. Then, for undergrad, despite my best efforts to leave and explore a different city, I stayed near Chicago and went to Northwestern University.

I would like to think I made up for my lack of traveling after graduation. Before Fuqua, I worked in a nonprofit that focused on providing upward mobility to under-resourced university students through educational training and student mentorship. I lived in three countries in the Middle East for seven years. I loved what I did and certainly hope I can continue having an impact after Fuqua.

At Fuqua, I’m involved in the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) i3 Impact Investing program. I also am a member of The Duke MBA Net Impact Club and Duke MBA Tech Club. In non-COVID years, I’d like to think I would also be involved in the basketball club.
