I’ve always loved science so I studied chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. After that, I obtained a Master’s Degree at Michigan State University. I worked as an organic chemist in several pharmaceutical companies before moving to the Netherlands in 2008. I wanted to apply my chemistry knowledge to a different field, so I became a product developer for a starch company. I really enjoyed developing innovative ideas into tangible products.
I came across an ad for an Assistant Manager Product Development on LinkedIn in 2016. It sounded like a good fit for my career ambitions. In the short time I’ve been working at Bunge Loders Croklaan, I’ve learned all about the world of oils and fats and how they can be used for various everyday products, from chocolate coatings to additives in animal feed.
I really enjoy working for a company with a long history of innovation and creative problem-solving. Bunge Loders Croklaan is committed to allowing its employees to grow in a direction that fits their ambitions. I plan on taking on more responsibilities to grow as a project manager while continuing to make innovative products based on vegetable oils.
