Areas of Interest: Consulting, Supply Chain, Transportation, Process Improvement
Anticipated Graduation Date: May 2012
A Bachelor’s Degree in Operations Research & Information Engineering at Cornell University introduced me to the efficacy of possessing skills project management, optimization, modeling, forecasting and mathematics.
My curriculum prepared me well for tasks requiring analytic thinking and problem solving. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Operations Research & Information Engineering to further not only my academic abilities, but also my project management techniques, interpersonal skills, and leadership abilities. My experience as a leader began in high school when I was elected as captain of my nationally competitive high school track team. My successes during that year inspired me to become a respected leader in all aspects of my life including academics, athletics, and social scenes.
As an intern with Wakefern Food Corporation for two years, I was given the chance to further develop my leadership and communication skills when I supervised a logistics-based warehouse. This past summer, I combined my Microsoft Excel expertise, my understanding of optimization, and my project-based academic background at Penske Logistics to organize nationwide transportation for Pepsi Beverages Company.
My academic prowess, project-oriented skills, and leadership experience are my defining factors as an engineer.
