University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

MBA, Marketing and Sustainable Enterprise

I knew I wanted to make an impact on entrepreneurship and the education at UNC better equipped me for it. Also co-founded Toastmasters, was VP of Student Activities creating annual budget and managing student elections, went to South Africa for general management global immersion and led executive leadership conference case competition team to win 2nd place as captain.

University of Missouri-Columbia

Bachelor of Science, Industrial Engineering

I knew I wanted to challenge myself with a STEM curriculum and was drawn to Industrial because it also involved people - creating the most efficient ways for people and machines to work together. Determining root causes and creating multiple solutions were my best lessons learned. Also participated in Day of Caring Steering Committee and National Society of Black Engineers.

What I Love

Running

Pushing myself to get through the run while taking in the beauty of nature is both a challenge and tool to strengthen my focus.
