Specialization: Generalist

Career Goals:
The ultimate goal is to run for office one day. Until then I’m working to get my MPA so I can be a consultant to government agencies to help them run more efficiently and effectively to better serve the constituents. However, given my experience with philanthropy I would also love to work for a non-profit organization. After my MPA, I plan to obtain a JD and practice law.
