On Working at FSG
"My curiosity and passion for social impact began after spending time in India and witnessing the incredible discrepancies between rich and poor and its trickle-down effect on health and education. For me, this experience seeded the belief that we collectively needed to do more. I believe strongly that the application of business thinking to social need is crucial in the collective advancement of society and was drawn to FSG because of the firm-wide focus on innovation for the sake of social impact. The team’s commitment to creatively engaging all sectors and encouraging each actor to push the norms of engagement on social impact is why I came to FSG."
