Before Duquesne: Blair is originally from Warren, Pennsylvania; however, she spent the last 7 years in Denali National Park, AK. Blair served as the youth programs director at the Denali Education Center, a non-profit organization in Denali National Park. Blair is now on the board of directors, and explains that their mission is to foster an appreciation for Denali through informative and inspiring programs. Blair moved to Pittsburgh for this program, and worked as the outdoor adventure specialist at Shady Side Academy over the summer. Blair completed her undergraduate degree at Allegheny College, majoring in environmental science.
Why Duquesne: I was actively seeking an MBA program with a sustainability focus and liked Duquesne’s program because of the opportunities to work with local businesses, the global study trips, and the cohort model.
Beyond Duquesne: Upon completion of the program, Blair will most likely be seeking positions with foundations or other not-for-profits in the Pittsburgh area. She’s most interested in program management and grant administration, but she’s sure she will have a growing list of interests as the program continues.
