BW healthcare management MBA
Head of External Affairs at Yuvo Health

Crain's excerpt
"Anthes serves as head of external affairs at Yuvo Health, an organization that focuses on value-based contracting for federally qualified health centers. He co-founded Quovis, a Cleveland-based startup that aims to eliminate barriers in medical record exchange, in 2022. He also serves as a lecturer for the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine and a visiting fellow on value-based care for The Center for Community Solutions.

In 2007, Anthes had the opportunity to intern in the office of the late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. That experience, he said, shaped his interest in health policy and advocacy."

How BW shaped Loren's success
"The education I got at BW equipped me with skills and knowledge, making me a more effective advocate and health systems thinker. The program's emphasis on collaboration and teamwork also gave me the chance to learn from people with diverse professional backgrounds and lived experiences, further enriching my education. Tom Campanella (BW healthcare executive in residence) helped me understand the fundamentals of health economics but also its history and origins. By doing so, he made me a better advocate and systems thinker."

Bachelor of Arts, sustainability major
Managing Director at Carleton McKenna & Co

Crain's excerpt
"Investment banking is more of a human enterprise than one would think, noted Nora Mahoney, an employee with Carleton McKenna since 2014. Although there is a numbers-heavy aspect to Mahoney's duties, it's the interactions with the people inside these dealings that fuel her fire."

"'This is their life, and people view their company as part of the family,' Mahoney said. 'You're not just acting on behalf of a client, but on behalf of the generations that came before and will come after.'"

How BW shaped Nora's success
"Baldwin Wallace is a point source for my success, as all my endeavors since link back to my experience, mentors and friendships built during my time at BW. My connections built during my time there and those developed after have provided me with business opportunities, personal and professional growth, and a sense of self that continues to guide me in my daily decision-making. Dr. David Krueger (professor and holder of the Charles E. Spahr Chair in Managerial and Corporate Ethics) is a stand-out professor and a forever mentor for me. He is endlessly willing to be a source of information, connection, and inspiration as I move through my career – he embodies the Baldwin Wallace spirit."

Megan-Wilson-Linkedin-photo.jpgMegan Wilson '12

Bachelor of Arts, finance major
Chief of Staff and Director, Public Policy & Government Relations at Cleveland Foundation

Crain's excerpt
"Megan Wilson did not realize her passion for volunteering could lead to a career in philanthropy until after she took a grant writing class her senior year at Baldwin Wallace University.

Wilson's grant writing professor encouraged her to take a fundraising position at the Cleveland Foundation, which she did right after school and eventually became chief of staff to long-time CEO and President, Ronn Richard. After Richard announced his retirement earlier this year, Wilson transitioned under then-incoming (now current) CEO Lillian Kuri to a newly created public policy and government relations position."

Crain's 20 in their 20s

"They're problem solvers. Empathetic listeners. Mentors. They connect the dots, are intellectually curious and have a zest for learning. Honorees were selected by Crain's editorial staff. They were selected based on professional accomplishments and nonprofit and civic involvement with the aim of recognizing a diverse range of people and industries."


Alexis Becker, MBA '18

BW management MBA
Vice President at Carleton McKenna & Co.

Crain's excerpt
"'Since starting as an intern, I really just fell in love with this business,' Becker said of her work as an investment banker at Carlton McKenna in Cleveland, where she has quickly risen to become a vice president since joining full time in 2018. 'I really like the diversity of the day to day. Every single day we're working at a different stage of the process with different clients across different industries.'"

How BW shaped Alexis' success
"BW’s MBA program was critical in my career development. BW’s professors, faculty and administrators truly cared about my development and provided me with tremendous opportunities for exposure in the investment banking field. They go above and beyond in helping their students to meet an exceptional network of industry professionals, access real-world professional tools, and learn the necessary skills to be prepared for any fast-paced and demanding career. I can honestly say I would not be in the profession that I am today without the connections and support received at BW."
