Class Year: 2024
JD/MBA Program Model: 3-year track
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Undergraduate Major: Psychology, U Penn
Previous Professional Experience: Private equity, specializing in commercial real estate; wealth management
Extracurricular Involvement: Penn Law Tennis Club and incoming JD/MBA Student Association social co-chair; next year, I’m also hoping to get more involved with PLWA at the Law School and Family Business Club on the Wharton side
Why a JD/MBA: Before coming back to school, I worked on a high-touch client services team that focused on gift and tax planning. I knew that I needed a law degree to continue working in estate planning, and because I don’t have a formal business background, I thought the MBA would help me develop a better understanding of my clients’ interests and the challenges facing them.
Career Plans: While estate planning is still something that I’m very interested in, being back in school makes me feel like I have unlimited possibilities, so I’m keeping my mind open!
