I chose Mason for my Master’s because…Mason offered a compelling “value proposition” for full-time, working professionals pursuing a graduate degree in science.
My favorite Mason memory is…Mason in the Final Four – it was awesome.
Professionally, I’m most proud of…seeing legislation that I wrote adopted by over 50 mayors and 28 governors, passed by unanimous consent in the 110th US Congress, and receiving a letter of recognition from the US president.
I advise current students to…develop soft skills to enhance your scientific knowledge and to learn good business and money management habits.
