Joony is a former management consultant at Deloitte looking to change fields and begin to reposition himself for a future career in nonprofit management. At Deloitte he was primarily involved in working in federal healthcare, serving in a number of different capacities, ranging from being the team’s “data guru” to convening and running stakeholder meetings. It was a great experience being able to have a hand in implementing Obamacare, but ultimately he decided that it wasn't where he saw himself for the long term. Joony graduated from Harvard University in 2010 with a degree in Economics and Evolutionary Biology. Originally from the DC area, he is now living back in my hometown of Fairfax, VA after his brief stay in Boston. He finds his balance in life to be healthy and enjoy being able to share experiences with and help others. Even if you don't scratch his back, he'll likely scratch yours -- that's just how he rolls!
