Over the past 13 years, I have spent much of my career focused on nut research and purchasing. For more than seven-and-a-half years, I have been responsible for Hershey’s procurement of peanuts and almonds. Before that, I worked in R&D as Hershey’s nut technical expert and on chocolate innovation projects.
When I joined The Hershey Company as an Associate Brand Manager in 2019, I knew I wanted to impact both the business and the people. I was a freshly-MBAed marketer with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) on her mind. Within six months, I threw myself into two things that fill my energy tank to the brim: recruiting and empowering women through joining the recruitment team and Women's Business Resource Group (WBRG).

I have always been fascinated by food. Smells, textures, and of course, tastes. I would consider myself a lifelong foodie! My relationship with food changed after reading the acclaimed novel “Fast Food Nation” for AP English in high school. I quickly began to care less about how my food tasted, and more about what my food was made of and where it came from. The horrors that were revealed about the fast-food industry in the novel moved me to become increasingly interested in nutrition.
