Bio

I was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and moved to California as a teen. I received a dual degree in Civil Engineering and Urban Studies from the University of California, Irvine. Prior to arriving at Fuqua I worked as a Transportation Engineering Consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area. In my spare time I enjoy traveling the world and through my adventures I have developed a knack for trip-planning.  I came to Fuqua to leverage my analytical background and passion for travel and pivot into a strategy planning role in the travel and tourism industry.  I am also excited by the opportunities to learn about the business landscape in Africa and frontier markets across the globe. My time at Fuqua is placing an international lens on my leadership development through a globally-focused curriculum, diverse student body, and global travel opportunities.
