What's your advice to current students?
An MBA is SO much more than going to class. Take advantage of your professors outside of class, participate in clubs, attend events and guest speakers, do as many coffee dates as possible and try things you don't think you like.
What impact do you want to make in the world?
I want to inspire more women to pursue leadership in business.
I was a synchronized swimmer for 7 years and attribute many of my leadership skills, ability to work well on teams and love of sequins to the sport.
