Mr. TFA Turned Consultant

About Me:

I grew up in an agricultural community in a low-income family in central California. As a first-generation college student, I had a transformative experience in college that left me business-driven and service-oriented. Wanting to give back, I did Teach for America in Hawaii. Since then, I have been an Associate at L.E.K. Consulting.

I will start this path through a major consultancy’s educational arm.
