Where were you in your career and what drove your decision to go back to school?
I had just completed a rigorous two-year technical sales rotational program with General Electric. While in the program, I had the opportunity to take several trainings and development classes. I enjoyed taking time outside of my daily routine to grow myself and I knew that graduate school would be a great way to continue to hone my management skills.

What was your favorite part of the Tufts MSEM experience?
The various project experiences that we had, particularly in Business Strategy, and my Summer Practicum were my favorite part of the Tufts MSEM experience. I worked with Black Earth Haulers and Good Measures. Both companies were start-ups who really valued our opinions. I enjoyed seeing the dynamics of a small business first hand.

Was there a professor or module that particularly impacted you and why?
Proactively seeking feedback and guidance from the professors informally outside of class was one of my favorite aspects of the TGI experience. Charlie Rabie was an excellent mentor during Business Strategy and my Summer Practicum. I appreciated his willingness to listen to concerns and provide advice. Partha Ghosh was always interested to hear about my current work and we enjoyed catching up about current events before class. Ewa Winston was a good friend to discuss my personal and professional development.
