MBA, Sustainable Solutions

Meet the Graduate

My experiences at PGS fostered a systems thinking perspective, empowering me as an environmental and social changemaker in my desired industries, craft beer, and wine. I gained valuable experience leading a project focused on learning the process of converting beer waste into energy. This allowed me to interview and make connections with several sustainability leaders in craft beer. I also had the pleasure of working directly with Newton Vineyard on a student team to establish KPIs and create a tracking system of progress towards achieving ISO certifications and global corporate sustainability goals. Another project focused on the impacts of climate change on California wineries. I am appreciative of the collaborative experiences PGS facilitated in these industries and others.

Moving forward, I hope to use my skills and experience in the craft beer and wine industries.
