Program Director, EMBA & Specialty Master’s Career Services

 

In my role, I have the great pleasure of working with a wide range of Fuqua students and alumni as I develop and deliver career programming across the EMBA and specialty master’s populations. Additionally, I am a career coach, so I work with students individually to manage their job searches, but more importantly their careers post-Fuqua.

I’ve been at Fuqua for five years, starting in admissions and transitioning to the Career Management Center. My favorite thing about working at Fuqua is getting to know so many unique, amazing students who I know will make the world a better place!

I have spent my entire career working in higher education—I love the college environment and constantly learning new things. I’ve worked with a variety of student populations in several institutions and getting to know students and helping them fulfill their goals is what keeps me energized. I recently completed my doctorate in education from North Carolina State University while working full-time and having a family, so I can relate to the balance our EMBA students manage during their time at Fuqua.
