Ms. Consumer Investor
I’ve been fascinated with the manufacturing and marketing of consumer goods for as long as I can remember. Majored in engineering with the intention of becoming a product engineer, but quickly realized that might not be the career for me. Ended up at an MBB after college and now work as a consumer investor for a boutique with top-quartile returns.
