I am originally from New Hampshire, in the United States, but have lived in Japan since 2008. My interest in Japan started during high school, when my family had an opportunity to host an exchange student from Okinawa. Following that I studied Japanese in college, and had an opportunity to spend a year at Waseda University, where I had an opportunity to experience life in Japan first hand. After graduating, I entered Cole Haan, working in their distribution center, and had my first experience working in Supply Chain Management. While I enjoyed the job and the challenges of the industry, I wanted to return to Japan, so like many other foreigners, I got a job teaching English. For the next 3 years I worked in Kofu, Yamanashi focusing on children’s education. I have been part of the en world Supply Chain & Procurement Division since 2012.
