What made you consider business school?

I chose to attend business school, and more specifically Olin, because of the emphasis placed on collaboration inside the classroom. If I wanted to reach my potential, I knew I must surround myself with fellow ambitious, hard working, and savvy students Additionally, I wanted my classmates to come from backgrounds and experiences unfamiliar to mine, so that I would be challenged to think more broadly and unconventionally.


What are you most excited about in terms of your time in business school?

Collaboration with students from various backgrounds and experiences.


Who are some leaders (in the LGBT community, in business, or in society) that most inspire you?

Andy Cohen: As a fellow St. Louisan and branding genius, I think Andy is a great role model and leader for the LGBT community.


What's one thing everyone should know about you?

I'm a BRAVO fanatic.
