I studied chemical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology before moving to France to pursue my MBA at HEC Paris. Prior to joining Strategy&, I worked at a manufacturing conglomerate with cross-functional expertise in supply and trading, research and development, and operations planning.
I joined Strategy& through the campus recruitment process. Before that, I had visited the Strategy& Middle East Dubai office as part of an MBA consulting trek in 2018. The welcoming culture at Strategy& stood out in my initial interaction with the firm.
Although I just recently joined the firm, my sense is that everyone at Strategy& is generally very supportive — seniors as well as more junior people. My teammates have been a source of inspiration and have pushed me forward in my personal and professional growth. The mentoring program at Strategy& has been a huge help in my integration with the firm.
Every day is a new day at Strategy& in terms of growth and learning opportunities.
I studied civil and environmental engineering at the American University of Beirut. After graduation, I pursued a master’s degree in concrete structures and business management at Imperial College London.
I then worked for three years as a structural engineer at Dar Al Handassah Shair and Partners, where I provided engineering services including design and modeling of towers, airports, and bridges for large developers in the MENA region.
I’m an associate based in Dubai, and over the past seven months I have worked on several interesting projects, including developing the strategy for a nature reserve and improving an airline’s budgeting process in the GCC.
To keep active, I like to ride horses and play tennis. Catching up with friends and family keeps me grounded. I also like to travel and discover new cities.
I try as much as possible to hold the line between work and personal life. During the week, I work hard to deliver high-quality work and meet deadlines so that I can enjoy my weekends.
The diverse and exciting projects I can work on, the pleasant work environment, and my colleagues whom I now consider family.
I was born and raised in Lima, Peru, where I studied industrial engineering and spent six years working at a technology consulting company. Three years ago I moved to New York to pursue an MBA at Columbia Business School. After an amazing five-month break (and a really cool internship), I moved to Dubai and started at Strategy&.
Having spent six years in technology consulting, I wanted to transition to a broader type of consulting to work on solving other types of problems, which led me to management consulting. I landed an internship at Strategy& NYC and got a full-time offer from them.
In parallel, during my MBA I met someone — a Strategy&-sponsored student from the Middle East — who is now my fiancé. When things got a bit more serious between us, we discussed the idea of moving to Dubai together. Luckily, things worked out and I was able to transfer my offer from NYC to the Dubai office.
I’m passionate about social impact. Over the past eight years, I have volunteered and worked in multiple pro-bono consulting projects in Peru, Kenya and in The Philippines. I also have an entrepreneurial side: A few years ago, I co-founded a company to sell female apparel in Peru, which I sold before moving to New York. Currently, I’m starting a business with a friend back home that taps into sustainable fashion and the circular economy. Lastly, I am really into exercising — I find it the best way to keep my mind at ease. I have been boxing for the last five years and I also like running.
