A former consultant and a professional musician by trade, my pre-MBA career in impact centered on using strategy, analytics, and organizational change to help public, private, and nonprofit organizations better deliver services and policies to citizens. I began by focusing on veterans and military families and evolved into international development and now climate/environment, working globally with international organizations and locally with community foundations.

My passion for impact and climate is driven by my faith and mission to pass on communities better than they were passed to me. I am pursuing an MBA at Fuqua to deepen my technical skills in finance and accounting, accelerate leadership development, and combine various aspects of my professional and personal expertise in impact investing and strategy for climate-resilient development. In addition to completing a Certificate in International Development Policy at the Sanford School, I serve as a CASEi3 and COLE Fellow, a leader in the Net Impact and Energy Club cabinets, and a member of the Duke Chapel Choir’s Tenor section. I’d love to connect with you and change the world!
