I took a leap of faith and chose the Rady School of Management. Three years later, I find myself launching a 501(c)3 specialty coffee house devoted to employing marginalized people groups, partnering with local businesses and government leaders, and working at Fifty and Fifty, a creative agency in Downtown San Diego that serves mission-based organizations. In a serendipitous turn of events, I allowed compassion to drive my career decision.

My friends joke that my life decisions are based on where I find the best ocean views. They have a pointâ€”Iâ€™ve been spoiled for two years by the incredible views at the Rady School and am excited to be joining a firm with yet another killer ocean view post-MBA.

When looking towards the future, a wise man once told me to reflect upon the past first. And when doing so, I am astonished by just how much I've changed over the past two years. The things I know, the people I've met and the memories I've made will all attribute to the road ahead in ways I may not understand just yet. One day I will and that is when I'll appreciate the real value of the three new letters behind my name: MBA.

Innovation is one of the hallmarks of the Rady School. While it lends itself to entrepreneurism, which is core to the Rady School brand, innovation is also necessary in the corporate world, in order for a business to be a leader in the industry. For me, finding opportunities for innovation within an existing organization is my goal, which made the Corporate Track of the Lab to Market (L2M) Series a perfect addition to my MBA curriculum.
