Education: BA in Economics, Swarthmore College
What did you do prior to T&Co?
"I studied Economics at Swarthmore College. I was particularly interested in the way that businesses enter & operate in different global markets. I further explored this interest through an internship at a growth equity firm that focused on companies trying to enter the Chinese market. ."
What about T&Co made you want to apply?
"After leaving college, I wanted to be somewhere I would be intellectually stimulated and develop strong business acumen. I wanted to enjoy what I was doing! After talking to a few people who worked at the firm, I knew that T&Co’s focus on navigating the complexities of market entry, growth discipline, and innovation would help me achieve all those things, daily."
What advice would you give to a new consultant just starting at T&Co?
"There is an opportunity to grow faster at T&Co than you would at most entry level consulting jobs. Take advantage of your buddies, managers & advisors – everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are getting all the opportunities you need to succeed.
Additionally, at a company as small and tight knit as T&Co, you are a very important part of the firm as soon as you join. Get involved with business development and internal projects – make the firm your own!"
