Why did you choose the Wisconsin MBA?
I chose the Wisconsin School of Business because of its specialization model, its close and collaborative culture, and its high rank among business schools in the country.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
I would advise prospective students to reach out to current students. By doing so they will form a well-rounded view of the culture. An easy way to build connections with Wisconsin faculty and students is by attending their MBA webinars or virtual visits. I would also recommend that they review the ROI of their target schools. Sometimes one might aim for the highest-ranking school but may not consider the debt they will graduate with. Lastly, the Wisconsin School of Business is a ROMBA fellowship participating school. If you identify as an LGBT+ candidate, this program offers unique resources and opportunities to connect with corporate partners.

Please share some fun and interesting facts about yourself.
I am a Miami native which means I have never lived in weather colder than 40 degrees.
