Hometown: Chicago, IL
College: Yale; History
Pre-Business School: Clean energy and public policy
Summer Internship: Marketing for Chipotle Mexican Grill's new fast casual chain called ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen.
Post-Anderson: Currently still working for Chipotle during the academic year
Childhood dream job: A Senator/professional snowboarder - because how cool would it be to be both of those things?
Why business school? I knew that I needed to gain substantive business experience and hard quantitative skills in order to take my career to the next level.
Why Anderson? Access to many different opportunities was very important to me when deciding which business school to attend. Anderson has a resource for absolutely everything you'd ever want to learn or explore. If you are a go-getter and hard-worker, the professional and academic opportunities that Anderson can offer you are virtually endless. ____________________________________________________________________________________
Anderson Activities & Leadership: Vice President of Communications for Net Impact; Anderson Admissions Committee Interviewer; Net Impact Board Fellow
Favorite class and why? So hard to pick just one but I'd have to say Professor Phillip Leslie's strategy class because he challenges his students to think big and to articulate ideas effectively.

Favorite Anderson Event: Definitely the ski trip to Breckenridge to celebrate completing fall quarter finals, because skiing and hanging out with over 100 of your classmates is the best.
Anderson Highlight? The ropes course during orientation. I've never been more inspired by my classmates.
What helped most in your interview preparation and career search? Conversations with the folks at the Parker Career Management Center. They helped me to narrow down my career interests and to focus my search during fall quarter.
How did you land your internship? I knew I wanted to work at Chipotle because I love the company. So, I was extremely pro-active on LinkedIn, started connecting with people from Chipotle, and one of those people eventually forward my resume to the right person.
Describe your internship: I will be running the marketing strategy for Chipotle's new chain of fast casual restaurants called ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen. The food is amazing! Check out our first LA location in Hollywood with Santa Monica coming soon!
