Why did you choose Daniels?

As I compared multiple MBA programs, one of the main differentiators was the sensible balance of the academic schedule with work and family responsibilities. I liked that Daniels’ EMBA program was structured to complete in 18 months with classes on alternating Fridays and Saturdays. I was also drawn to the immersive leadership and business experiences that Daniels offers for its cohorts, including the sailing trip, international business trip and social good challenge.

Previous Education

BS in Mechanical Engineering, Virginia Military Institute

Pre-Grad School Experience

I have been in a variety of engineering design, infrastructure development and operations management roles in my career, primarily within the energy industry.

Post Grad School Goal

I have many, including holding executive roles within the renewable energy industry, finding opportunities to give back to the Colorado community, traveling to various international locations and enjoying the journey!


I love to golf and will play with various friends at every opportunity. One of the great advantages of Colorado’s abundance of sunny days is that one can essentially golf year-round. I enjoy backpacking in the summertime, especially within Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. I also appreciate cooking and will frequently either try new recipes or tinker with older “standbys.”
