MMS: FOB | Class of 2019

 

I am from Tallahassee, Florida. After graduating with a major in information technology, I worked at Kyra Solutions, a leading IT firm based in the state. As a managerial trainee, I worked to bridge the gap between the worlds of business & IT for almost a year. While working at Kyra, I did a certification course at Harvard Business School called HBX: CORe. On completion of the course, I knew I wanted to go to a business school.

I came to Fuqua with the goal of learning with an open-mind and delving into a new world of possibilities with like-minded people on a similar professional level. Here, I am a marketing fellow, a contributing part of the Fuqua Sports Business Cohort, and am participating in the Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum. My experience at Duke has furthered the skills I need to be successful in my area of interest—entrepreneurship, marketing, consulting, entertainment, and sports business.
