As a result of the self-discovery and sense of achievement she experienced during her own business school application process, Annie is passionate about helping aspiring MBAs achieve their goals and transform their careers. Annie feels privileged to mentor others with her candid yet dedicated approach, and has been doing just that at Square One for over two years now.
Annie is a seasoned marketing professional, with over 10 years of experience in international strategic planning, multi-cultural marketing, business development, merchandising, brand management and licensing from her work at organizations such as Nestlé, Disney, Target, Sony, and NBCUniversal. With all her career achievements, Annie is most proud of helping lead the MBA recruiting team during her time at Nestlé as she enjoyed her role providing support and guidance for Nestlé MBA interns.
Annie earned both her MBA and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. As USC is known for its “Trojan Network”, Annie is also known as the Master Connector and enjoys using her own personal network to connect others. Volunteering as a USC Marshall Executive Mentor, she inspires and advises Marshall MBA Candidates to ensure thay have a game plan to reach their career goals.
Annie lives in sunny Los Angeles with her family. When she’s not guiding folks through the admissions process, you can find her training for marathons, shopping at the local farmer’s market, refining her skills as an amateur chef, skiing in Big Bear with her family, or cheering “Fight On!” at a USC football game.
