Upon graduation in 2008 from Carolina, my first posting took me abroad where I worked as a local language support engineer for Microsoft China in Shang Hai for almost 10 years. During this period of my 20’s spent internationally, I extensively traveled Asia, managed projects in Oceania, and provided technical troubleshooting and consultation services to clients primarily in Australia and New Zealand where I became a dual American-Australian citizen. Upon repatriation in August of 2016, I joined the MBA programm at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, coincidentally, another FBLA-PBL national partner, where my focus was my vocational passion: aviation management. And I now work as an analyst for Delta Air Lines.
