I am pursuing my MBA to strengthen my finance, marketing and accounting skills which will help me advance in my career. While growing professionally, I would also like to create a positive impact on every human being I come across by utilizing my improved functional skills and a core value called passion.
I collected a bachelor’s and master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from M.I.T. As a development manager at VMware, I had the opportunity to build out a new product and grew it into a successful part of the business. It was a great opportunity to learn about the business side of technology and inspired me to go back to school and get an MBA at Fuqua.
I was born and raised in Tanzania, East Africa, and have lived in the US since 1994. For fun, I enjoy sports, outdoor activities, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. I am excited to be part of The Fuqua School of Business, and a part of the Blue Devil pride and spirit!
I am a finance professional, reserve military officer, and entrepreneur. I am thrilled to be affiliated with Fuqua, and prior to matriculating, I enjoyed meeting several Duke students, staff, and alumni. I’ve always been impressed by their pride and passion.
I am currently an Advisory Software Engineer at IBM, located in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. I am pursuing my MBA to cultivate both my leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit. I chose Duke because of its exceptional executive program — defined by its diverse student body, world class faculty, and reputation for excellence — which I believe is the framework to develop strong, passionate leaders.
I work in the Durham area as Director of Global Video at MetLife focusing on communications. Back at home, I own a small hobby farm that fits in with the simple and relaxing lifestyle that I enjoy. Attending Fuqua will provide an opportunity to learn innovative ways to energize teams I lead, and I look forward to the MBA journey.
I live in Richmond, Virginia, where I work as a senior manager of financial analysis at Capital One. I am pursuing my MBA to focus on improving my leadership and soft skills, to help me continue to advance within finance at Capital One.
I grew up in Virginia and live in Charlottesville now where I work for PRA, a contract search organization in the pharmaceutical industry. I have been an avid reader and writer since my childhood and enjoy traveling with my husband.
I’m a North Carolina girl, born and raised. I grew up in Lexington, where barbecue is king and grits are a food group. My background is in marketing, which has allowed me to develop an understanding of what makes consumers tick. I joined Fuqua to hone my leadership and soft skills and acquire critical quantitative skills.
I pursued my MBA in order to transition out of the world of finance and into general management or product/brand management. Outside of work and school, I like to spend time with my family and friends traveling, trying new things, and spending time outdoors.
