Nicole Barefoot, Duke Fuqua MBA student blogger

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, but after receiving dual degrees in Art Studio and Global Studies from the University of California Santa Barbara, I decided to head east. I spent the last four years in Boston soaking up all things American history and embracing my proximity to the best clam chowder.

After college, I worked in retail marketing, first at GUESS? Handbags and then at two startups: Fashion Project, an online clothing donation destination, and Tamara Mellon, a direct to consumer brand started by Jimmy Choo’s co-founder.

At Fuqua, I am the leadership representative for Section 4 (go Table Bangers!), helping to create an open environment for my classmates to learn about, and express themselves authentically. I am also an active member of the Tech, Association of Women in Business (AWIB), and Marketing Clubs and active Fuqua Friday participant.
