Originally from Kansas City, I’m returning to the Midwest after living in Atlanta and Buenos Aires.
After studying finance and accounting in my undergraduate studies at Emory University, operations first caught my attention when I was working as a financial analyst at Arby’s Restaurant Group. I realized that while I was providing valuable support in evaluating deals and analyzing strategic projects, the true success of the projects would depend on operational execution. It made me realize that operations are often where value is truly created. The Tauber Institute is helping me accomplish my goal of transitioning from a career in finance and accounting to operations management at a data-driven company. The institute's resources have provided me exposure to the world of operations and hands-on experience using data to problem solve.
