How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
Learning to communicate and think critically in the English track at Duke was tremendously valuable in setting a career course that has evolved in unexpected and exciting ways. I'm so grateful that I didn't specialize too early as I love working in a broad strategic capacity.
