MPA in Public & Nonprofit Management & Policy - 2010
Why did you choose Wagner for graduate school?

How did being in New York impact your professional journey?
Being in New York afforded me nearly endless opportunities to gain experience in my field. I worked for an international development organization and was able to spend significant time leading a team in Afghanistan, an incredible and unique experience that I may not have found elsewhere.
