MMS: FOB | Class of 2018

 

I’m from Tampa, Florida, and graduated from the University of Florida in 2017 with a degree in finance. I was a member of the university’s gymnastics team, and as a former student athlete, Fuqua’s emphasis on teamwork stood out to me. I fully understood the power of a team, and I was excited to see how that would translate in an academic setting. I was also looking for an experience where I would constantly interact with diverse people, because I’m always looking for ways to challenge my perspectives and ways of thinking.

At Fuqua, I’ve been part of the first-ever Fuqua Sports Business Cohort, a group of MBA, MMS, and MQM students who all have a passion for sports and a goal to merge this passion with our future business careers. After Fuqua I’ll be working as an associate consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory in Dallas, Texas. I hope to be a part of their deals practice and be involved in mergers and acquisitions both pre-bid and post-integration.
