About Me:

Multicultural background (half white, half Latina) with a passion for leveraging HR data insights to inform business strategy.

I pivoted internally into an M&A role, identifying prospects for Corporate Development.

Big Life Wins:

Over the summer, I left the company I was at for 3 years. I’ve been developing an independent consulting idea around talent strategy. I secured my first client and I’m in talks of adding a potential second. This is my first entrepreneurial experience and I’m excited to dive into different People-related business challenges on a flexible schedule.

Post MBA Goal:

Post-MBA I’d like to gain broader exposure to other HR disciplines, such as People Analytics, Compensation & Benefits. I’m mainly interested in the following two potential paths: either pivoting into human capital consulting at a Big4 firm, or pursuing a rotational HR Leadership Development program in Tech (my previous industry).
