Big Life Wins:

– Worked in global health research and policy during the pandemic, was able to translate that experience to projects at my consulting firm supporting large US cities during the winter’s 21′-22′ surge & publish a paper in a lesser-known journal.
– Supported a national non-profit on an overhaul of strategy and developed tools now used in their day-to-day operations.

Post MBA Goal:

Return to consulting, then exit to non-profit management (in healthcare/early childhood). The idea is to bring business skills (e.g., data to drive decisions, ruthless prioritization) to a non-profit space.
