After graduating from University of Washington, I stayed in the Seattle area (also where I grew up) and worked in merchandising operations and vendor relations at Nordstrom. In those roles, I got the opportunity to collaborate internally and with vendor partners to improve our end-to-end ordering processes and to ensure that merchandise flowed efficiently through our supply chain. I came to business school to get a broader view of how businesses determine their strategy and how they can optimize their operations and supply chain to better serve their customers. I chose Ross because of the tight-knit community, for the action-based learning opportunities, and to expand my horizons by moving somewhere new and through meeting a lot of amazing new people. Please feel free to reach out about anything! Happy to share my experiences and answer any and all questions!
