Hello!! Welcome to my blog. Those that know me would be shocked that I am blogging. I don’t own a smartphone, just got back onto Facebook after several months hiatus and can barely understand Twitter. So why am I blogging and more importantly why should you keep reading?

One, I found reading blogs quite helpful during the application process. I could really get a sense of student communities and culture. Two, I come from a non-traditional B-School background and hope to assist those in a similar situation that are considering applying. And finally, I’ve been inspired by my incredible peers, phenomenal support teams and dynamic city of Austin (in just a few short weeks!)  that I wanted to share the experience.

I grew up in Los Angeles – yes, the actual city – and most recently called San Francisco and the Bay Area home. Right out of undergrad I worked for an international shipping company in a rotational development program. This adventure had me living in New Jersey, Atlanta and Oakland. I then switched careers and most recently worked for the University of California in Student Services and HR. Post MBA I want to stay in Higher Education Admin and bring some of those business savvy skills into a traditionally less structured environment.

Outside of school you can find me running around the lake or baking some delicious cookies. I also volunteer with the after-school program Girls on the Run. I plan on taking full advantage of all the outdoor activities and mild weather here in Austin!

Please feel free to reach out to me at if you have any questions, comments or want to teach me a bit about social media.
