Why did you choose Daniels?

I was set on moving to Denver for graduate school and had an eye on Daniels for the Real Estate & Built Environment program. I committed to Daniels the first time I visited campus for my admissions interview, where I learned more about the MBA program with a REBE concentration option, and saw where I’d spend the next two years. The challenge-based curriculum was also a big factor in my decision.

Pre-grad school experience

I worked full time in the commercial construction industry before coming to Daniels.

Post-grad school goal

One of the reasons I went back to school was to pivot out of the construction industry, not knowing where I wanted to land. I’m aiming for somewhere in the real estate industry and Daniels is helping me figure out where I want to be.


I enjoy hanging out with friends, running, reading, music, park time and skiing.
