I graduated from the Oregon State College of Business in 2011 with Bachelor’s Degrees in Management in Entrepreneurship. While at OSU I was involved in the Austin Entrepreneurship Program and a member of Sigma Pi Fraternity. I was referred to Target by one of my professors, Sandy Neubaum, and after a presentation in class by a Target representative, I had a conversation with her that ended up being a catalyst to the next five years of my life.
In my five years at Target, I have held four different roles in three different states. Currently I am an Assets Protection Business Partner, a role in which I support 33 Target stores in the Pacific Northwest for all things related to safety, shortage, and risk management. Target has been such a phenomenal company to work for, I truly appreciate the amazing people whom I’m privileged to work with each day and the continuous development opportunities to help me achieve my goals and be my best self.
Oregon State and the College of Business certainly helped set me up for success in my current role by encouraging me to be well rounded and build strong connections with those around me. I look forward to growing the number of fellow Beavers that I get to work with in the Target world! #GoBeavs
