Her innate people skills, empathy and critical reasoning were further honed during a rigorous undergraduate approach to psychology.

Personal Perspective & Career Vision

"The world grows more connected and interdependent with each passing day; only when we recognize this can we truly maximize our enterprise potential. It is vital that we incorporate cultures beyond our native sphere into our personal and work perspectives, by doing so we become more versatile, competitive, and universally appealing. My experience abroad, living and working in a culture not my own has given me an in-depth understanding of the advantages and challenges China poses to business and specifically the supply chain. I have had to utilize my language skills in unique ways, and been exposed to various work environments, living in a big city but performing quality control inspections in Chinese factories. I believe these skills make me a valuable talent uniquely positioned to embrace uncertainty and adapt to change in the fast paced world of supply chain management."
