  • How did you end up with a career in consulting?
    I don’t shy away from challenging paths – I live for them. It was this reason I chose an Engineering degree from a top Engineering School. While studying Chemical and ultimately Industrial Engineering, I realized what I loved most about Engineering was the problem solving. I enjoyed looking onto a problem, having that first thought of the unknown knowing the best feeling will be looking back at the journey and recognizing the outcome. In consulting, I get to do this over and over again.
