Why did you choose Daniels?

The Daniels College of Business Executive MBA program offers a global perspective, a diversity of complex topics, and an intimate cohort size. The class schedule and program length are also ideal for balancing a demanding professional and personal life while getting the most out of school.

Previous Education

BA in Sociology and English: Creative Writing, University of Colorado Boulder

Pre-Grad School Experience

I worked as a data analyst at the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) directly out of undergrad. I transitioned to a more technical business intelligence role at MGMA early in my career. After moving into management roles and growing in my organization, I am now the Senior Director of Digital Solutions at MGMA. I have also volunteered for various advisory boards to contribute to my professional communities, primarily in the IT space.

Post Grad School Goal

My goal is to leave the EMBA program with a close group of lifelong friends and professional support. I also look forward to growing as a leader and exploring new passions I discover while in the program.


I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, family, friends and two pups. Traveling is a passion of mine. I also love running, hiking, trying new restaurants and breweries, binging TV (if I have time!), drinking good coffee, enjoying live music (especially at Red Rocks) and listening to audiobooks.
