Big Life Wins:
In college, I spent four years on the varsity soccer team at my D1 school. I was never a big contributor during games (only getting playing time here and there), but during my Senior season, I was named team MVP for my “commitment, discipline, and leadership” despite my lack of playing time. Designated as a top 5% performer at top 3 tech company.
Post MBA Goal:
Short-term after earning my MBA, I would like work either in corporate strategy for a fortune 500 CPG company in the food/personal care space or in management consulting focused on the CPG industry. Longer term, I would like to be part of an operating group at a CPG focused PE firm and eventually an executive at a PE owned CPG food company.
