I have often taken the road less travelled in my career - veteran, nonprofit entrepreneur, small business owner, and now starting a new career in management consulting. 

My journey has helped me gain a unique perspective on problem-solving. The Telfer Executive MBA helped me focus my interests and better understand how to hone my passions to achieve meaningful outcomes. I’m grateful and excited about my new journey.
