Mr. Digital Health
Directionless and confused most of highschool, I was told to be a Doctor through the years so I thought I wanted to be a Doctor. Struggling with a lack of purpose and sleep apnea I suffered a 1.8 GPA my freshman year of University. Re-evaluated myself, my goals and went after treatment for my condition. Consistently got 3.8 – 4.0s the following semesters and pushed my GPA to a 3.42.

Post MBA Goal:
I am fascinated with health care, and a huge part of my transformation was realizing you don’t have to be a Doctor to help people. I want to work my way up to starting my own digital health startup, either through first working with a current startup to learn their process or as a management consultant.
