I went to UC Berkeley for undergrad and earned a dual degree in mass communications and business administration. After 3 years as a financial statement auditor and launching a marketing media company, I decided to go back to school for my MBA. At Fuqua I became heavily involved with FuquaVision and Career Fellows.
I’m from New Delhi and in addition to other cities in India I have lived in Nigeria and Chile. My passion for research, diversity and community made Fuqua a clear choice for my MBA, and I’ve engaged that community through club participation and event organizing.
I’m originally from Sonoma County, California, and returned to Duke for an MBA after completing my undergraduate degree here. I spent the years in between as an officer in the United States Marine Corps, and not surprisingly one of my favorite movies is “Top Gun.”
I have a background in accounting and finance that I want to leverage into a career change while at Fuqua. I’ve lived in large cities like New York, Philadelphia and even a short time in Rome, but had no trouble making a smooth transition to life in Durham and the southern United States.
I'm excited to return to Durham after completing my undergraduate studies at Duke. I look forward to combining classroom learning and experiential learning as I explore different career options in the healthcare industry. In the meantime I'll be involved with Admissions activities and cheering on the basketball team in Cameron!
Born and raised in Poughkeepsie, New York, I’ve lived in the Midwest (Indiana), DC and New York City, which easily makes Durham my warmest and favorite climate I’ve lived in. While here, I intend on developing my PR background into a marketing skillset, and also learning quite a bit about entrepreneurship. My passions are extremely varied; I love talking about everything from Duke basketball to the latest tech products to why Snooze on the West Coast is the best breakfast place in the world!
I was born on the island of Jamaica, and last lived in New York before moving to Durham to attend Fuqua.

I received my bachelor’s degree in economics from Brandeis University and worked as a financial statement auditor at KPMG LLP in New York City before deciding to change careers and study business at Fuqua.

I also served as a COLE Fellow and Admissions Fellow.

I grew up and attended undergrad in the northeastern U.S. and worked in New York for a few years before realizing I wanted a career that would make more of an impact. So I joined the Peace Corps—working in Madagascar—I’ll be leveraging my experience as a commercial strategy MBA associate for Delta Airlines after Fuqua.
I grew up outside of Los Angeles and attended school in Washington, D.C. before doing a stint on Capitol Hill. Volunteering with a campaign to protect gay rights in California ignited a passion to affect change which led me to pursue a joint degree in public policy and business. I’ve also had some fantastic travel experiences in my time at Duke.
After growing up in rural Maryland I was due for a change of scenery, so I went to undergrad in New York before going to Europe as a member of the Peace Corps for an even bigger change. That work in development has remained important to me, and now I’m involved with Fuqua’s Net Impact Club and the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship.
I am from Chile where I worked in investment banking before coming to Duke to prepare myself for future challenges as a senior manager. I’m pursuing a joint degree so in addition to my MBA I will have a Masters in Public Policy upon graduation. When possible I try to escape my busy schedule to go fly fishing.
North Carolina has been my proud home since I was born, and is where I plan to gain a more comprehensive perspective of business through my business school studies at Duke. I’m currently on the BLMBAO (Black and Latino MBA Organization) cabinet and an active member of the Consulting Club.

I also pursued a concentration in marketing and was an Admissions Ambassador. After graduating from Fuqua, I accepted a position in media at Intel.
Lima, Peru, is my home and where I studied communications in pursuit of a journalism career before turning my focus to marketing.

I like to swim and watch TV, but plan to keep busy at Fuqua so I might have to catch up on my favorite shows later.
I’ve lived in California, Utah, Spain and California again, the latter of which while working for a large asset manager.
