What degree did you pursue and why?
After working as a mental health therapist for several years, I decided that I wanted to shift my career focus and get my MBA. I pursued my MBA with a concentration in Business Analytics, with the hope to use this specialized training to help propel me into a new career either in healthcare or another industry.
Why did you choose the Belk College of Business over others?
I chose the Belk College MBA over others because of its strong accreditation status, consistent innovations and variety in MBA specialties.
What was the best part of your academic experience?
I am not originally from Charlotte and have made this my new home. That said, in addition to all the new skills and knowledge I gained from the program, I also really enjoyed getting to make so many new connections with people in the program.
How would you describe the Belk College of Business to someone considering a master’s program?
I would tell them that while the program is challenging and will make you work hard, the faculty and staff are very invested in seeing you succeed and become better leaders for our community.
What activities were you involved in when not working/studying?
My hobbies include riding and repairing bicycles and cooking. I primarily enjoy cooking Italian and even make my own homemade pasta noodles and sauce!
