WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

I strongly believe the best way to learn, and eventually master, subjects is through practical application.  To me, this made Daniels’ focus on hands-on experiential learning an excellent fit.  That Daniels is located in Denver, a growing city full of opportunities, was also a big draw for me.

 

PREVIOUS EDUCATION

Bachelor of Science in History, University of Oregon

 

PRE-GRAD SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

Before moving to Denver and starting the full-time MBA program at Daniels, I supported the Department of Defense overseas as a reports officer and analyst.  I also spent four years in the U.S. Army, training all over the country and deploying to Afghanistan.

 

POST GRAD SCHOOL GOAL

Following my time at Daniels, I plan to work on project-based initiatives that can leverage my strengths in teamwork, strategy and planning.

 

HOBBIES

Being from the Pacific Northwest, I grew up loving being out in the woods.  From hiking, to camping, to kayaking, I just can’t get enough of being up in the mountains.  I also spend a lot of my time in the summers trying to get better at golf, and have recently spent my winters snowshoeing and learning to ski.
