I don't believe I would have been able to parlay my education in to this diverse of a career path had I not obtained my JD/MBA at Mercer. So the philosophy of keeping my options open allowed me a fairly unique career journey and the legal and business foundations obtained at Mercer gave me the knowledge base to make it happen.
