The ExecMBA Podcast
In this episode of the podcast, we catch up with Executive MBA alum Alison Williams. Alison graduated from Darden in 2015, and she is currently serving as a Chief of Staff for the Governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson. We connected with Alison via Zoom to talk about her background, how she decided to pursue an MBA, how her Darden experience helps her in her current role and why she feels an MBA is value for policy professionals.
Alison Williams is a Senior Research Nurse in emergency medicine at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, currently covering COVID-19 positive wards.I chatted with Alison about her incredible Rainbow Box initiative, the challenges of front-line working and home schooling! Neither of us is doing any.If you'd like to support Alison's incredible fundraiser, supporting patients in hospital, please head to @Rainbowboxes on Facebook.
I am a Senior in Molecular and Cellular Biology this year. I am currently applying to medical school, and plan to pursue a career as a physician-scientist and educator. Iwill dedicate my career to increasing access to high-quality care, particularly among underserved groups. I also plan to research and implement disease prevention strategies. I currently work in Vedantam Lab where I study the infectious disease Clostridium difficile Infection (CDI). CDI causes thousands of deaths each year and billions in healthcare costs. C. difficile is one of America’s most significant public health threats and I find it deeply exciting to do work that has the potential to directly help patients. I spend Saturdays playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends, I am passionate about tea, art, and meditation, and I love animals of all sorts.
Alison Williams sat down with me while I tried to get a grasp on the vast scope of her work. She’s someone who tastes the full buffet life has to offer and savors every bite. She’s owned and sold multiple successful businesses. She’s a writer, professor, home renovator, former doula and has a new venture she’s started since we recorded this episode. She’s a devoted mother of 2 beautiful girls. She has navigated one of the most respectful divorces and is a model of co-parenting with her ex-husband. She’s someone who lives circles around most of us. There’s always something new on her horizon-she’ll learn it, do it, master it and then be on to the next adventure. But, there’s nothing flighty about her. She approaches everything with fierce intelligence, steely strength and grounded calm. We’d like some of what she’s got to rub off on us! It’s a whole catch her if you can vibe that’s aspirational. Since we recorded, she’s launched a new project with her love. They bring super cool, lesser-known, rebel winemakers into the Ojai community for all sorts of awesome events.Love the show? Subscribe, rate, review, and share!
