I’m a rising second year student at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business. Prior to enrolling, I worked as a journalist for five years at a major magazine in Washington, DC. While there, I was selected to serve on an internal consulting project analyzing the magazine’s production process. The project was a success, and others like it soon followed. I found myself so enjoying those experiences that I left journalism to pursue an MBA.
Darden immediately stood out from other programs for its case method teaching style, team-oriented atmosphere, and high-quality teaching staff. When I’m not studying cases, I enjoy cooking, hiking with my dog, and listening to live music.
