After graduating from St. Germaine in 2004, I attended Marist High School and then the University of Illinois where I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and a minor in Business. I began my working career in 2012 as an economic consultant, supporting testifying experts in antitrust matters through research and data analytics. While working as a consultant, I decided to continue my education and pursued a MBA degree from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. After working full time and attending classes in the evening, I finally completed my MBA degree in June 2017. Recently I made a pivot in my consulting career from economics to strategy and operations consulting in the higher education space. Although it has been almost 14 years since my time at St. Germaine, I have stayed close with many of the friends I made in my graduating class. Attending St. Germaine taught me the importance of a good education and the value of long lasting friendships.
