Quote: "I came to Duquesne, an undecided business major. But after taking several classes, I decided I wanted to be in supply chain. It is an emerging profession that involves integrating different activities to reach a goal. I've been very fortunate. I've had many opportunities that made me realize how much I enjoyed working with people and bringing people together to reach a goal. A lot of people have shaped me in getting me to where I am today."
