Share your journey to Bain.
My mission is to solve some of the world’s trickiest challenges, which require solutions across the public and private sectors. I started my career as a diplomat at the US State Department, serving as Presidential Management Fellow and Senior Advisor across a range of political and economic portfolios spanning Europe and the Middle East. After business school at UVA’s Darden (I'm a triple Hoo), I returned to the foreign policy world to be the founding deputy-director of the Global Energy Center at the Atlantic Council, a global foreign policy think tank. While I appreciated the incredible opportunity to build a new entity, I realized I wanted to put into practice and learn more from the private sector. I felt that the array of experiences that Bain and consulting offered was my next path forward to achieve that desired skill set and contribute to my overall mission. Therefore, I joined Bain's Washington, D.C. office, including a transfer period to our Mexico City office.
How did you know that Bain was the right company for you?
The people, commitment to community and our clients. I knew that I would be fortunate to work with some of the top companies globally with incredibly smart individuals. What was most impressive to me as a key differentiator were Bainies themselves. I felt like I would be part of a true community that was committed to supporting each other. I was also impressed by the consistent commitment to our clients, both through the results of our work and the people we get to work with.
Do you feel like you can do impactful work at Bain? What opportunities excite you?
I’m excited by the impact and the growth trajectory of our sustainability & responsibility work. I was fortunate to be brought on for a one-year rotation last year to lead and rapidly scale Bain’s Sustainability & Responsibility practice, which involved building out our network and knowledge globally. Currently, I am working with clients on broad ESG ambitions, including climate & biodiversity and financial & investor considerations.
