Dr. Melissa Anderson – Melissa was my advisor through my doctoral program. She was challenging yet fair, and I continue to reflect and apply the lessons I learned from her in my work today (e.g., the ability to think critically and how to isolate the solution against core issues). It has been several years since competing my degree, and I still share ‘Melissa lessons’ when working with my team.
Dr. Charles Muscoplat – Dr. Muscoplat was a mentor when I was at the U. He taught me about business, navigating complex organizations and maintaining integrity in challenging times.
I am excited to work with colleagues from around the world on technology solutions that make lives better. It is extremely meaningful to see how 3M contributes to everyday life through products, technology solutions, or philanthropic efforts.
Flexibility, global perspective, critical thinking.
