Big Life Wins:

Led teams of business sponsors, engineering contractors and operations managers to complete business case analysis for six capital projects ($1-30 M) in NEUS (1), EU (3), and LATAM (2). I’m not a native Spanish speaker, but the role gave me the opportunity to use my second major in Spanish to lead the LATAM project teams in their native language.

Post MBA Goal:

MBA – Business basics with emphasis on operations and decision making. Short Term – Join a top consultancy in search of many repetitions through capital project life cycle and exposure to best practices across companies and industries. Long Term – Return to pharma and optimize capital project management to cut waste and lower COGS for patients.
