Get to know Daniel Cullen

My background is a bit different than some of my peers, so I was glad that the flexibility of Booth’s curriculum allowed me start my MBA exactly where I needed to be. I went to Princeton for undergrad where I majored in Politics and found my way to Breakthrough Fuel in Green Bay, WI, after graduating, where I became VP of Advisory Services. My post-MBA goal is to work in consulting and this summer I’m interning at Bain & Co.out in Boston.

Get to Know Kate Nimmo

I was born in New York City but mostly raised in Wellesley, Massachusetts (which led to a very tumultuous adolescence as a Yankees fan living in Red Sox territory as the Sox were ascending to greatness). Prior to Booth, I spent two years each in Seattle and San Francisco, so after experiencing life on both coasts, I decided I would be remiss if I didn’t also explore the middle of the US. Despite the lack of saltwater coastline, I’ve loved running along the extensive lakefront of Lake Michigan (the view of the skyline from Adler Planetarium is my favorite spot in Chicago).
