How did Georgia Tech and/or the Nunn School help you get to where you are in your career? 

Georgia Tech & Nunn School taught me how to be organized, manage my time, be a problem-solver, act proactively, and think big which has played a major part in my career progression so far (also my love of Georgia Tech lead me to start working here after graduation)

What advice do you have for prospective or current students interested in pursuing your field of study? 

Explore every single opportunity available to you (even if you are not sure about it or it may be out of your comfort zone) - you absolutely never know where something may lead!
