I pride myself in mastering a diverse array of business concepts and using this knowledge to understand the ties between all functions within a business. I believe in trying new things, innovation, creativity, trust, and good old hard work. USC's Marhsall School of Business is well known for breeding entrepreneurs and business leaders due to their commitment to educating students in diverse business disciplines not limited to Strategic Management, Marketing, Operations Management, Data Analysis, Accounting, Finance, Business Statistics, Business Communication, Leading Organizations, and much more. I have embraced this diversity by actively pursuing separate fields of study. Not many students pursue Product Development Practicum Courses, work as an Accounting Tutor, and have their writing in the field of business communication published. Being raised by public servants, I believe that showing respect, trust, and compassion to others is extremely important for developing strong teams, and strong businesses. I believe that cross-functional initiatives are the lifeblood of strategic business development, and the managers that will lead the most successful initiatives are the ones who push their teams to perform by offering these three things.
