I graduated from Wake Forest in 2000 with a major in Political Science, a minor in International Studies, and certificate in Management.  After graduation, I briefly worked at Morgan Stanley as a marketing coordinator and investment intern manager.  Based on my studies at Wake Forest and my personal interests, I knew I wanted to combine my interests in politics and business.  I found the perfect situation in late 2000 accepting a position with KPMG Consulting, a large federal government consultancy.  I worked for KPMG Consulting (which ultimately became BearingPoint) from 2000 – 2009 supporting an array of federal government clients including the Department of State, the US Agency for International Development, and Department of Justice.  In 2009, I joined Deloitte Consulting as part of an acquisition and I am currently serving as a Strategy and Operations (S&O) Senior Manager in the firm’s Emerging Markets segment with special focus on diplomacy and international development.  Some of the hot button issues I work on include immigration reform, border security, and capacity building for “fragile states”.  In addition, I support many strategic firm initiatives and community organizations including Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the National Capital Region and Leadership Fairfax.   My coursework and experiences at Wake Forest provided me with a strong foundation of critical thinking, communication and writing skills that helped me to succeed professionally and inspired me to give back to my community.  Many thanks to the Wake Forest faculty and administration, and particularly the Political Science Department.  [posted February 2011]
