Operations - Global Planning

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to cause many ripples," is a quote from Mother Teresa and my life motto. I am a visionary, who aspires to connect people and resources in a strategic manner to develop innovative solutions for Global problems. I am passionate about positive social change and working to bring together people to create larger systematic changes. I am a New York native who relocated to the Bay Area to work for Cisco in July 2019. Currently I work in the Supply Chain’s Global Planning function as a demand planner. Within this role I am responsible for developing a long term forecast for service provider products that is sent to our manufacturing partners as an EDI Signal. I also serve as the supply chain campus lead for Howard University in which I get to plan recruiting events and campus engagements.
