Following ROTC at The College of William & Mary, I spent four years in the US Army split mostly between Fort Wainwright, Alaska, and Kandahar, Afghanistan. During this time, my primary roles were Platoon Leader and Executive Officer, both in an Infantry Company. I then went to business school which served as a stepping stone to open new doors in the civilian world. For me, it was the perfect way to add business acumen to the skills I developed in the Army.
Similar to the Army, Nestlé Purina is also an organization that has a strong set of values. The ‘Five Talls’, as these values are called here, permeate the company and continue to guide the business. I believe this has led to a high-quality and positive work environment that I enjoy coming back to every day.
