Hi there! My name is Mo and I graduated from Wake in 2013 with a degree in Sociology and a minor in Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise. Right after graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C. to first work for Deloitte Consulting in their public sector practice and then joined the federal government’s “nudge unit” that applied behavioral economics and social science insights to improve government programs. Both of these experiences inspired my desire to go to graduate school to learn more about how to drive innovation between the public and private sectors to solve social challenges. I earned my Master of Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School and my Master of Business Administration from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, and I used my time as a student to dig into economic development, impact investing, community organizing, and public private partnerships. Since graduating, I’ve developed economic innovation policy for candidates, trained election officials to help prepare them to manage election risks, worked as a rural Field Organizer on a senate campaign in Appalachia, and I am now back in D.C. working at the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Policy Advisor supporting the implementation of equitable economic recovery programs.
I’ve learned to let my passion for social impact and public service lead the way in my career journey, and I’m looking forward to talking with alums who are also navigating the uncertainty of carving out their own unique path. My areas of expertise include public sector innovation, community organizing, economic development, impact investing, systems thinking, negotiations, consulting, public-private partnerships, and learning to be your own best advocate. I’m also happy to connect with alums considering graduate school, those who are interested in public service, public sector consulting, rural policy, campaigns, and early-stage social enterprises.
Here’s the intake form for Mo. Once you submit your responses, the confirmation message will include Mo’s contact information. Please send her an email to request a conversation!
