Global Executive MBA | Class of 2020


I obsess over creating tools that make your work more delightful and simple. I'm a curiosity-driven product manager that is passionate about crafting innovative technologies that change the way people work. I love to learn more about how modern knowledge workers accept, process, and deliver tasks that drive their businesses forward. I am passionate about building the processes, habits, and tools that afford people to do their best work ever.

I’m getting my MBA at Fuqua because modern workers are no longer tied to their desks—they’re all over the world. The Global Executive MBA at Fuqua arms me with the knowledge and experience of understanding how different cultures interact with their work and what makes people fall in love with their careers.
