University of Utah Business Alumni Association

Earlier this year I was selected to be a board member for the University of Utah Business Alumni Association (or UUBAA, for short). This is an incredible honor and I can’t wait to help give back to an organization that has given me so much over the past two years!

One of the primary responsibilities of UUBAA is to foster mentor/mentee relationships with undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of business-related majors. I decided to join the SMART Start Committee as it is one of the more established programs within the David Eccles School of Business and one that provides direct one-on-one mentoring.

Most people don’t know this, but the University of Utah churns out some of the highest rates of entrepreneurs in the nation — especially in the fields of science and technology. Because of my background in engineering and now business, I feel like I can be a valuable voice in assisting the program. My first committee meeting occurred this past week and I feel incredibly inspired by all the participant. Can’t wait to get started!

PMBA Ambassador

Just saw on the University University of Utah Eccles School of Business website that they had my photo and details listed under the Professional MBA Ambassadors list!

PMBA Ambassadors is a program where alumni can mentor prospective and current students over all facets associated with the program (career guidance, coursework, networking events, etc…). By being am ambassador, my personal goal is to provide helpful guidance to students to make it a little more easier — however minuscule — for them during their time at the University of Utah.

Receiving my MBA while working full-time was one of the most difficult challenges I’ve ever had to overcome in my relatively short career, but it was also one of the most rewarding things. I knew after I completed the program I wanted to give back as much as possible as a way of saying “thank you.” So if you have any interest in going back to school to get an MBA, feel free to shoot me an e-mail or contact me through the website — I’d be happy to give you my opinion!
