My 20+ years in the CPG industry has been with brand leaders and innovators (Coca-Cola, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Pepperidge Farm and Empire Marketing Strategies). The innovation and change in the industry have challenged me to grow and learn along with the best teams. My MBA from Xavier University enabled me to leverage my skillsets in a new and dynamic manner. And my Six Sigma Black Belt and LEAN Certification provided me with Process Management skills that I have been able to use daily. My personal growth includes finding new and innovative ways to be an active voice for animals. This includes attending HSUS workshops and volunteering at the League for Animal Welfare. Of course, it also includes creating caring relationships with my own fur babies.
