Why did you choose SJC?
In my family, SJC is a tradition. I have an aunt, uncle, and sister who attended this institution. The small class sizes with one-on-one attention from the faculty were a good fit for my learning style. It encouraged more participation amongst students and better communication with the professors.
How did SJC prepare you for the real world?
The Business Administration faculty cares about the success of each individual student, and I felt comfortable talking to my professors about problems in class or asking them for advice about my future. They were more than willing to look over my resume, read cover letters, and write letters of recommendation for internships and job opportunities. The faculty at SJC left a lasting impression in my life by challenging me to think strategically and be mindful of the unintended consequences and always practice the "Golden Rule."
What are you doing now?
I am a Six Sigma Black Belt for The Dow Chemical Company based in Mougins, France. My role is to lead strategic and productivity improvement projects within our commercial business units throughout the global marketplace. Additional responsibilities include learning and enabling others to use Six Sigma and Lean methodologies, mentoring Green Belts and providing expert advice on team dynamics, change management and performance improvement tools.
As a student, what were you involved in?
I was a four year member of the men's golf team and the Investment Club, and I also worked in the campus library.
