MBA ’17 |
I grew up in a south suburb of Chicago with my parents and younger brother. I attended Texas A&M University where I received my B.S. in Food and Bioprocessing Engineering. I worked for 3 years with Procter & Gamble, managing engineering capacity expansion projects for Tide Pods and packaging/supply chain optimization for Febreze. With my father’s business, PacMoore, as an example of a for-profit company focused intently on creating jobs and bringing faith to the world, I decided to attend Vanderbilt Owen School of Management to earn my MBA in Finance and Strategy as a next step towards building a similar career path. I plan on either working in Private Equity upon graduation or starting my own food technology company.
For-profit businesses have an incredible opportunity to change the economic landscape of our world not only through job creation, but also through investment in people. The TFC and Project Pyramid give us as students the opportunity to use our backgrounds and strengths to work with young companies in emerging regions and see life change in the families affected by this work. As a Christian, I believe I am called, through business, to multiply that which has be entrusted to me and use it for the well-being of others, both physically and spiritually. Project Pyramid is my first opportunity to exercise this calling, working with communities deep in poverty and making a change through investment, job creation, and relationships. Thank you to the TFC for making this dream a reality!
