Bio

I'm an experienced business leader with an MBA. I joined WyzAnt because I enjoy helping motivated people acquire new skills and confidence!

In 2014 I earned an MBA degree from a top-ranked program and graduated with distinction (GPA 3.79/4.00). During that program I completed two professional internships as a management consultant and analyst for venture capital investors. Earlier in my career I raised $100K in seed funding and launched an American-style bakery-cafe social enterprise in Eastern Europe. After school I entered the field of healthcare administration, and managed a business unit in New York that was part of an international Fortune 500 healthcare company.

Career Development

As an MBA student, I received over 100 hours in career development coaching. I have assisted peers, friends, and family to craft resumes and cover letters and to rehearse for interviews. As a business owner and director of a non-profit, I interviewed dozens of candidates. As a job-seeker, I have also applied and interviewed for roles in numerous industries.

- I won Best Team Defense (oral) and Best Biennial Report (written) in an eight-week financial management competition. My team of five ran a computer-simulated multinational company for eight weeks, making decisions on capital structure, sources of financing, inter-company funding, transfer pricing, international tax management, currency risk management and interest rate risk management. - I performed due diligence research on about 12 potential investments and reported findings to venture capital and angel investors. - I advised the management teams of five early-stage startups on steps they could take to increase the value of their firms and to position themselves for future rounds of funding. - I assisted the management teams of two startups to develop financial and operational models in Excel to support their business plans.

Microsoft Excel

As an entrepreneur in Kosovo I developed a bookkeeping template in Excel that the local authorities agreed to accept in place of three paper ledgers, saving my employees time and reducing errors. As an MBA student I relied on Excel for a variety of marketing and finance projects. During that time I both gave and received informal help from my colleagues on how to better use Excel. I am passionate about finding ways to use technology (especially Excel!) to simplify business processes. Several times each month, I learn new Excel skills by looking up free tutorials online. I would be happy to help you do the same and become self-sufficient.

Public Speaking

I received formal public speaking training in college and in my MBA program. However most of what I know came as a result of volunteering for speaking opportunities and seeking feedback afterward. My speaking experiences range from advising venture capital investors on the risks/benefits of potential deals, teaching lessons from the Bible, and speaking to the Albanian public on behalf of the US Embassy in Albania. Both at work and in school, my colleagues looked to me for coaching and leadership in the area of public speaking.

I built websites as a teenager (in the late 1990s) both for myself and non-profit organizations; I was self-taught from books and websites. I became proficient in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop through formal college courses. I developed expertise in business tools, especially Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint. I have used both a PC and a Mac as my primary computer at least 5 years each. I approach computer tutoring with the goal to make the client self-sufficient! Technology changes quickly, but you can stay ahead of the curve!

I began using Microsoft Outlook in a professional capacity over a decade ago. A course I took on Microsoft Office as a college Freshman in 2005 enabled me to use Outlook at an intermediate level. Since then I have used various versions of Outlook, both on a PC and on Outlook.com, and have attained advanced proficiency.

ESL/ESOL

As an American growing up in Albania and Nigeria, I learned two languages to native fluency (Igbo and Albanian) and another two languages to elementary proficiency (Greek and Italian). Later as a university student I also studied both Arabic and Mandarin Chinese. Along the way I have informally helped dozens of friends to improve their English proficiency. For instance, two years ago I helped to organize an English conversation club that met at a cafe in China. Earlier in life I also volunteered to teach ESL to professionals from Latin America working in Washington, DC. These experiences gave me a great deal of first-hand experience about how people learn new languages and also a love for the process.

In 2007 I graduated from The American University in the University Honors Program. My capstone project on US foreign policy received an Honorable Mention, an honor given to about 5% of graduating seniors. Last summer (between the first and second years of my MBA) a colleague and I wrote a 100-page business plan for a large public-private partnership budgeted at $500 million. Using the plan, our client was able to secure a partnership with the Lincoln Center, its top prospective partner. My GPAs reflect a wide range of academic skills: Associate degree 4.00, Bachelor 3.75, and MBA 3.79.
