Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose Daniels largely because of the strong alumni network, especially here in Denver. I was also excited by the challenge-based curriculum, as well as the robust career resources available to Daniels grad students. The coaches here are fantastic, and I love that you have access to them for the life of your career.

Pre-grad school experience

I started my post-grad career working for a magazine in New York City, then moved to Denver in 2017 to start my own content business. For the year and a half prior to starting grad school, I was the head of content for a marketing and technology agency in the luxury hospitality space.

Post-grad school goal

My goal is to transition into a project management or consulting role, ideally intersecting with marketing strategy and/or branding.


My biggest passion is traveling. My goal is to get to 50 countries by age 50 (I’m at 21 countries now, so I’ve got time)! My favorite place I’ve been so far is Croatia, and next on my list is Japan. I also love spending time outdoors, going to concerts and channeling my inner sommelier with a great glass of red wine.
