Davis is a launch pad to pursue many career opportunities in one of the world’s economic centers: Northern California. With the state capitol, Sacramento, as our neighbor, I was able to explore politics and public administration as a fellow in the Office of Mayor Kevin Johnson. And just an hour’s drive is the San Francisco Bay Area, where I interned at a private food company and am now working at a global semiconductor industry supplier.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels.
