My road in life has been direct.
Growing up, I was good at math and science, and was always curious about how things worked.
I got my bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering, which I felt was the best way to blend my interests with real-world operations.
After undergrad, I continued my education and received an MBA in finance from Loyola University Maryland.
I started my career out of college at Frito-Lay and spent as much time as I could learning about operations, engineering, and leadership—all of the things that make factories and supply chains tick!
From there, I’ve held various positions across the continent within the engineering, manufacturing, production, and supply chain fields.
At one point in my career, I was given the opportunity to pursue an expatriate position—my family and I moved to Canada, where we all had to learn and adapt to a new culture and environment.
I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to watch and learn from both good and bad leaders—that mentorship has helped me step into the leadership roles that I’ve held.
I’m now the vice president of operations at the gigafactory for Tesla in Nevada, where we make technology to help the world transition to sustainable energy.
Keep following my journey
