How long have you been with CSCMP? What kind of involvement have you been a part of?

In 2018, I became a member of CSCMP through my corporate membership with OOCL Logistics.  Wanting more involvement with like minded professionals, I joined the Southern California roundtable as a member of the Hospitality Team.  My experience was so positive and rewarding that I have entertained the role of Hospitality Chair since 2021.  My involvement engages with everyone, whether you’re a first-time attendee, non-member, or an existing member of CSCMP.  The Hospitality Team will be there to support a positive experience for each of our monthly events.

What value do you get from being engaged with CSCMP?

I personally gain value in the educational content and opportunity to network with a large scale of industry professionals.

What value do you get from being a member of the board?

Knowing that I can engage in team building among my industry peers from all sectors of the international supply chain arena.

Why did you initially get involved with CSCMP?

I wanted to build on my industry knowledge, while staying closely connected to my peers and current supply chain events.

What is your favorite CSCMP memory / event / other?

Touring the new SoFi Stadium before the first game of the season has been my fondest experience.  The SoFi staff was awesome.  We were shown the home team locker and press rooms.  They opened up the football field, allowing us to run onto the field, toss footballs and engage in team sports.  It was very cool!
