Fun Facts & Advice
What is a book you have enjoyed or are currently reading?
One of my favorite reads is a daily devotional called, “New Morning Mercies”, by Paul David Tripp.
How has your career unfolded and led you to where you are today?
Prior to joining Essense, I spent near five years of my career in multi-mode, transportation management, supporting clients with freight solutions and strategic initiatives. I greatly enjoyed building meaningful, account relationships, problem solving, and executing continuous improvement projects.
What advice would you give someone who wants to get into International Business/International Trade and Logistics?
Be proactive in your educational development and seek mentors. There is always something new to learn in the industries of supply chain, trade, and logistics, with ever-changing conditions. From there, use your experiences to encourage and help others with their professional growth.
What else do you want to tell us about yourself/what is something unique about you that is generally not known?
In addition to logistics, a few passions of mine include fashion, my faith, and playing volleyball. My family and I are also big, Nebraska volleyball fans, and are beyond excited to watch their season this year!
