Career Aspirations

I have worked in the fields of education and youth work for over ten years, and hope to continue to apply my skills and talents to make meaningful contributions in these sectors. My goal is to take what I learn from Booth to combine data, research, and strategic management in order to inform both policy and practice to ultimately improve outcomes for students, especially those most in need.

Why did you choose to pursue an MBA?

The field of data is rapidly and continually developing and advancing.  The Booth MBA program will provide me with the opportunity to refine and diversify my abilities in this area. More importantly, though, the MBA will allow me to strengthen these technical skills while simultaneously cultivating the financial, operations, and management skills necessary to positively impact any sector.
