Big Life Wins:

I am an innovative problem solver. When my current team experienced significant turnover, I implemented an outsourcing solution supported by data automation tools that reduced headcount and also reduced G&A by 15%+.

Post MBA Goal:

I would like to enter management consulting focusing on sustainability solutions, which I believe are among the most important issues our generation will have to solve. Eventually, I’d like to be either a chief sustainability officer at a global company or an entrepreneur within the circular economy
