I am a doctoral candidate in management and entrepreneurship at the Leeds School of Business, at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO.
My research focuses on entrepreneurial cognition and decision-making as it relates to financial decisions, both from the investor and the entrepreneur perspectives. The two contexts used in my dissertation are crowdfunding and post-natural disaster communities.
Prior to pursuing my doctorate I worked for Walmart Stores, Inc. in Bentonville, Arkansas. During my 6+ years with the company, I worked in each of the three operating divisions: Walmart US, International and Sam’s Club Wholesale. Notably, I purchased consumer electronics and music for the 4000+ US store locations. I was involved with several due diligence projects for foreign targets, as well as the integration of several acquired companies.
