Chloe, thinking back to your adolescence was there a particular job you dreamed of doing when you grew up?

Thinking back to when I was a child, I really wanted to be a sports medicine doctor when I grew up. I have always been involved in sports and have had my fair share of injuries, but I always got right back into competing with the help of a great team of doctors. I thought that I would love to be able to give back and help people the way that those doctors helped me but years of school later, I realized that being a doctor was not my calling.

There are many compelling reasons to undertake an Executive MBA Program. What is your goal for the Telfer Executive MBA Program?

My goals throughout the Program will be to push myself outside of my comfort zone, to maximize my learning experience and that of others, to fully commit to all projects, and to gain new skillsets. Being in the Telfer Executive Program is a great opportunity to have an unparalleled learning experience and I believe that the next 21 months will be a very transformative time for me and I look forward to all of the challenges ahead.

What qualities do you admire in a mentor? Do you have someone you consider a strong mentor in your own life? What I admire most in a leader or mentor is their ability to help you maximize your potential. The person in my life that I admire most in terms of being a leader is my mother; she has always encouraged me to push myself to be better and has provided me with all the opportunities and resources to be able to achieve my goals. Watching her overcome numerous challenges as I was growing up made me realize that when you really commit yourself to something the possibilities are limitless. She is probably the most determined, supportive, and caring person that I have ever met and without her support I would not be where I am today.
