MY PROFESSIONAL GOALS | “Professionally I plan to stay at BNSF and seek a leadership role in management most likely in our Technology Services department. I would like to utilize my business and leadership skills obtained through my MBA at UTA in a leadership role within BNSF influencing the direction of our Technology Services department. I am most proud of the friends and connections I have made in my professional career. I have met some brilliant people with such rich, diverse backgrounds and abilities. I have enjoyed leveraging the best of what they have to offer to improve my own skill set and to become a more resourceful professional.”

MY HISTORY | “I graduated from North Crowley High School and chose UTA because the College of Business had a good reputation within the community, which I had hoped would help with locating a job after graduating. I decided to return to UTA for my MBA because of their strong relationship with BNSF. I also selected the UTA MBA because of the Cohort format. The value of the networking that the Cohort provides was important, and the schedule worked perfectly for me.”

MY UTA MBA EXPERIENCE | “The friends I have made in the MBA Cohort have been amazing. The program fosters networking with such a diverse group of professional students working for great companies in the region! I have made many lasting connections and friendships through this program. Our cohort even took it upon ourselves to coordinate several field trips to the companies that we work for.”
