Tell us about your career path. How did you get into this field? Was it purposeful or by accident? 
 
My early career was in application/systems development (aka “programming”), but the company quickly learned that I not only was technical, but could also give presentations and was comfortable in customer-facing situations. I moved into pre-sales support and then into a role as a product manager, where one of my responsibilities was negotiating contracts with application partners.

Introducing...Women in Global Sourcing

Posted: 12/28/2018 - 02:09
I have a passion for style and design. I like handbags, stilettos and lipstick so much that before I stumbled on sourcing during my senior year of college I planned on a career in fashion. I had recently finished my Alpha Gamma Delta sorority presidency and volunteered to coordinate Lip Jam, our largest fundraiser of the year benefiting diabetes. I hired a local print management company to source all the print, apparel and promotional items for the event. Out of nowhere, they offered me a job. I’m sure it was my charming personality and drop-dead good looks.
