Professional Background: 
Before working for EAB at the Advisory Board Company, I was a teaching fellow through the University of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education. While earning my Master's degree in education, I also taught middle school English in under-served schools in Dallas, Texas.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
Majoring in English at Duke allowed me to refine my writing, analytical, and critical thinking skills, all of which have all proven essential throughout my professional growth. I am extremely grateful for the educational foundation I received while at Duke.
