My Leadership Experience

Perhaps my most rewarding experience here at Wharton, serving as a Leadership Fellow has allowed me to support a group of first-years throughout their transition to the MBA program and aid in their leadership development, while greatly stretching my own coaching and mentoring skills in the process. In addition, I was fortunate enough to become closely connected to a tight-knit group of inspirational classmates who I’ve come to consider a supportive family.
