Get to Know Melissa

"I grew up in Stowe, Vermont and attended Boston College for undergrad, where I studied communication and environmental studies and played varsity ice hockey. Prior to Tepper, I spent the last four years living in Boston, working in various marketing and business operations roles at a boutique IT procurement consulting firm.

"From a career perspective, I chose Tepper because of its strong reputation in tech and analytical programming. I fell in love with Tepper from experiencing the culture during Diversity Weekend. I was really worried about the quant-heavy curriculum, but here everyone helps each other out. I knew I was at the right school when CPA's who tested out of accounting classes were hosting their own tutor sessions."
