MES alumna Sophia Sepulveda '15 works as an intelligence analyst in Houston

Sophia-SepulvedaMES alumna Sophia Sepulveda '15 works as an intelligence analyst in Houston, Texas at United Healthcare's Global Risk department where she provides analysis on geopolitical developments and security threats to clients with operations or business interests in Asian countries. Prior to her promotion to this position last year, she worked on a 24-hour rotational basis (primarily graveyard shift) monitoring the world for any event that could affect traveler security.  "It's been nice to work in an industry that is tied in some capacity to the courses I took at Brown," Sophia says.  She has accepted a full scholarship offer to The University of Houston Law Center starting in August, and is getting married in December.
