With a quick wit and strong work ethic she is looking for work and internship opportunities to leverage her experience, language skills, passion for cultural exchange.

Personal Perspective & Career Vision

"As globalization continues to advance, in order to maximize enterprise potential, individual countries have to acknowledge the impact of increased reliance and interconnection with global trade partners. It is vital that we incorporate cultures beyond our native sphere into our personal and work perspectives, by doing so we become more versatile and competitive. 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 rural 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."
