Director of Client Consulting at Mercer Investment Consulting

Career Changes While at Booth

Booth exposed me to new jobs in industries I didn’t know were available. I was previously working at Goldman Sachs in the asset management group, and was introduced to investment consulting. Through the Booth network, I was able to get an interview with Mercer and I’m now director of client consulting.

Why Booth?

What stood out about Booth for me was the strong finance education and network that you get at Booth. Booth also offers the same professors in full-time classes and part-time classes so I didn't feel that I was going to get a pared down version of an MBA just because I was in a part-time program.

Lessons learned at Booth

One of the important lessons I've learned since I've been at Booth is that just because you're not in a leadership position doesn't mean that you can't act and be a leader.
