We asked the alumni celebrating a birthday today (May 21), "Where are you now?" Here's what they said:
Brook McShane Bock MBA '05
Most importantly, I am a mother of two fantastic girls, ages 4 and 6. Professionally, I am Senior Director of Industry Product Management at Blackboard in Washington, DC. I develop solutions that help higher education institutions better market, enroll, and service students through technology, analytics and consulting services. I am also responsible for our institutional performance M&A strategy.
Megan Forlines MMS '12
I currently live in New York City and am a Corporate Merchandiser at Ralph Lauren, managing Men's Polo and Polo Golf brands. I also work on Ralph Lauren's major sporting sponsorships and events including the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, the USA Ryder Cup Team, the Wimbledon Championships, the British Open, and the U.S. Open Tennis and Golf Championships. This summer I will be traveling to Chambers Bay in Washington to attend the 2015 U.S. Open Golf Championship for work.
Katherine Hutton '05, MBA '11
I'm currently in Washington, DC, but I'm moving to West Point, NY this summer. I'll be at the United States Military Academy in case anyone is planning to attend the Duke vs. Army football game in October.
Caroline Liang MBA '10
I am in Shanghai, China, and work with Manulife-Sinochem Life Insurance as senior director of the Shareholder Project Management Department. Below is a picture with my husband, my 3-yr old daughter, and I all wearing Duke T-shirts when we visited the new Duke Kunshan University.
Julie MaGill '94, MBA '00
After graduating in 2000, I have been in the New York City area ever since. I have been working at Google in NYC for the past four years, and live in lovely suburban Maplewood, NJ.
Ahsan Rahim MBA '99
I'm currently SVP and Head of Business Operations for the Provider Business at Truven Health Analytics. I've been with the business for a shocking eleven years now, which makes me an old-timer by most standards, and yet still a newbie by healthcare industry standards. On the personal front, my wife (Aneeqa) and I have two wonderful sons aged 6 and 2, and we quite like being based in Lake Forest, about an hour north of Chicago (except the few weeks every winter when I wish we could move south… anywhere south). Definitely miss Duke though, as I haven't been able to visit in over a decade.
Ankur Sanghi MBA '14
I have moved closer to Team Fuqua and Duke family by moving to the Triangle area. Interestingly, it was my friend from Team Fuqua who offered me to work as a CIO at his company, Dolven Enterprises. Duke and Fuqua School of Business are part of my everyday life now and forever.
Damon Willis I MBA '03
For the past decade, I have lived in Sugar Land (TX). I enjoy spending time with my 8-year old-daughters (Maci & Zion) and 7-year-old son Damon II. I am the Plant Controller for Country Pure Foods facility in Houston (TX). Our parent companies are a Japanese partnership between SAPPORO Group & Toyota Tsusho America, Inc.
Nigina Yoqubova MBA '08
I live in Austin, TX. Lately, I've been taking some time off from work. What I do with my days these days is take various dance classes, read books on numerous topics, go to acrobatic, opera, ballet performances... simply enjoy life.
