The institution I work for envisions "a world free of poverty." Although this is a simple concept to grasp, the challenges it presents to young economists and policy makers are enormous. I come to work every day knowing that my efforts make a difference in people's lives and hoping that someday we will fulfill our vision.
The joint MPP/MBA degree from Pepperdine helped me discover the passion I have for economic development through a diverse curriculum and countless interactions with experienced professors. It is empowering to have a broad set of skills that allow you to work in a place that is not only challenging, but also extremely rewarding.
