Get to Know Nathali

"Prior to my MBA journey, I was an automotive engineer for six years. I started my career as a design engineer at Honda in Columbus, OH, and then took a project engineer role at an automotive supplier in Chicago. I decided to pursue an MBA to round out my skillset and move into tech.

"After Women’s Visit Day, I decided to join Tepper. I got to see how tight-knit the Tepper community really is by meeting current students and alumni. Overall, I got a great feel for the culture and collaborative mindset of the school.

"Pittsburgh really impressed me, too. It has a rich history that a lot of people overlook and is trying to revitalize and rebuild itself as a tech hub. It's also has a well-connected airport, a number of solid restaurants (check out Driftwood pizza), cool micro-breweries (my favorite is Dancing Gnome), museums, and cool outdoor spaces."
