What did you want to be when you grew up (when you were little)? In high school? Now what do you want to be?
When I was little I wanted to work with animals. I dreamed of being a zoo keeper or veterinarian. In high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do but I had a strong interest in history and politics. In my years at Grand Valley I have found a love for business and problem solving. When I grow up, I want to be happy with a successful career in supply chain management and I would love to be a mother as well.
Favorite Food: Anything with carbs.
Does work count? I currently intern at a tech-enabled start-up company in the 3PL industry.
Favorite event from and/or thing about DSP:
I love going to Griffins games with brothers. My favorite even last year was Formal.
Favorite thing about Grand Valley:
The opportunities for professional development within Sideman and the small class sizes.
Why did you join DSP?
I joined for the professional development, but I stayed for the brotherhood (cheesy but true).
Why did you choose Grand Valley?
I like the idea of the mid-sized school and the location was a good distance from my hometown.
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I want to still live in Michigan. I want to have my MBA and a successful career in supply chain management.
