MBA Candidate

Arizona State University

Tempe, AZ

Ambitious MBA candidate seeking to grow and diversify my strengths while utilizing my strong consumer relations and business development skills.





W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University

Master of Business Administration, Marketing

As a current MBA student I am loving taking the time to dig deeper into academics, career paths, and our community. I am proud to be part of the first Forward Focus class, with a new, innovative curriculum. Thus far I have experienced immense self discovery and a better understanding of my leadership and negotiation styles.

W. P. Carey School of Business

Competitive Marketing Analyst - MBA Fellowship

In this role I research - a lot. I compile and analyze competitor data and their effects on our programs. Additionally, I have assisted the media team, seeking alignment with national media campaigns.

My favorite aspect of this role is considering the affect that competitors decisions can make on our competitiveness in the academic landscape.

So. Many. Restaurants.

Server, Bartender, Trainer, etc.

For a long time I didn't include my restaurant experience on any 'professional' impressions of myself. No more! My experience in restaurants has taught me invaluable skills in communication, time management, and service leadership. I forged bonds with colleagues and customers and spent time developing as a leader through these roles.

Discovery and Exploration

Nothing recharges my soul and inspires me like travel. My longest and most immersive trips have been a half way around-the-world by sea voyage and a backpacking trip through Europe. My favorite shorter trips include weekends in New York City, hiking throughout Arizona, and road-trips in the Florida Keys.

Endicott College

Bachelor of Science, Hospitality and Tourism Administration

Why study something you don't love? I have always loved to travel, and I am immensely fascinated by the thought that goes into building a luxurious hotel or throwing a stunning event. So, it seemed fitting that I studied Hospitality and Tourism as an undergraduate. I loved that I was able to learn business principles, set in the frame of travel and hospitality.
