The WHITE Talking “I’m quiet, optimistic and a hard worker. I lead by example.”
Biggest Accomplishment “Helping to develop exciting products and seeing them launch at our company’s global convention.”
First Job “Hooking weeds in my family’s soy bean fields in Indiana.”
Dream Job “I wanted to be a registered dietitian. I always enjoyed cooking and eating and wanted to understand how these foods impacted my health.”
Youthful Advice “A professor I worked with as an undergraduate told me that the nutrition field (or any field you are in) is small, so never burn any bridges! I encourage everyone to establish those relationships with professors, managers, and co-workers so they are willing to give you a recommendation when opportunities arise.”
