“Earning an MBA from Poole College not only gave me the necessary skills to be a management consultant; it helped me establish my niche. I help grow early-stage technology companies trying to solve current environmental and energy problems. I also serve as the North Carolina Ambassador to the Cleantech Open national accelerator.

My experience at Poole was instrumental in giving me the necessary hands-on experience and tools to build successful technology startups from the ground up. I am thrilled to actively support the Sustainability Initiative by sharing my expertise.”
