Kathleen Carroll

MBA/MS Program 2017

While four years of research-intensive consulting work after college helped to inform my interests and their emphasis on environmental conservation, it was the time I spent living and working in East Asia--first in Beijing and Chengdu, and then in Taiwan--that underscored for me a global imperative to shift how humans consume, especially in those countries that serve as role models for the developing world. After majoring in Chinese at Georgetown, I am coming to Erb to gain the quantitative and management skills that will allow me to effect change, ideally within food systems, to preserve resources and increase efficiency while broadening access to wholesome sustenance for communities with plenty, as well as those with less.
