Jeff is a first year student at The Paul Merage School of Business focusing on strategy and development. Prior to returning to business school he spent two years abroad with the Peace Corps in Albania. Jeff worked in a rural town and did everything from youth development to grant-writing. Since his first trip outside the US (to India) he has caught the travel bug, but it's focused more on understanding different lifestyles more than being a tourist. Since then he's been all over eastern Europe and to Rwanda. In essence he is looking to make a positive impact in deserving people's lives.
