Big Life Wins:

My success in my first analyst role out of college and being fortunate enough to close seven deals during my two years at my bank set me up for success at my current role. I am only the sixth associate during my firm’s 40 year history to be asked to stay for a third year as a senior associate which I am planning to do before my MBA.

Post MBA Goal:

Working with family owners in private equity is what gets me excited and fuels my work ethic, professionally speaking. From my short career thus far, I intend to stay in private equity after my MBA and would like to come back from business school with a new skillset and knowledge base that will hopefully build on what I’ve already learned.
