What surprised you most about Marshall?
My classmates come from extremely diverse backgrounds, with many even coming from outside of business. For instance, I have one classmate who is a former prosecutor, several who are former teachers, and some from the medical field. This diversity of perspectives adds so much value to class discussions, as it forces us to think critically about business problems.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
Business school is an extremely enriching experience, yet we are often quite busy. Unlike a job where you have a standard schedule, we have classes in the morning and then the rest of the day is reserved for club events, recruiting sessions, group projects, social events, and so much more. Your time is spread across many more activities, so time management is absolutely key.

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
AVP Impact Education (Tech/Real Estate) - Net Impact, AVP Wellness Week - Mindful Marshall, AVP Team Prime Time - Challenge 4 Charity

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
I love just spending time in the courtyard during lunch. It is bustling with energy, and I get to have really interesting discussions with my extremely humble, friendly, and bright peers.

Favorite USC Marshall Core Class:
Marketing Management

Which clubs are you involved in?
High Tech Association, Entrepreneur & Venture Management Association, Marshall Data Analytics Club, Challenge 4 Charity, Graduate Women in Business, Jewish Association of Marshall Students, Marshall Net Impact, Mindful Marshall, Energy Club, Marshall Outdoor Club, MBA Ambassadors

Why did you choose Marshall?
The supportive culture and strong sense of community. The location, as I wish to enter the Tech industry on the West Coast. Finally, the Trojan Network is the real deal!
