Ms. Ambitious Hippie
After 3 years of growth & contributions at a leading impact investing non-profit, I’m looking to advance my career in sustainable agriculture & food systems. I have a strong academic background + deep experience in social enterprise/ non-profit approaches to social impact and sustainability. Seeking MBA for private sector & management experience.

Post MBA Goal:
Long term, through the MBA I want to be positioned to take on executive/upper-level management positions in leading non-profits in the sustainability/ food & agriculture space. Short term, I want to use the MBA to 1) gain private sector exposure and experience related to food and agriculture, and 2) pivot out of non-profit fundraising.
