“Cargill hires great people -- people who are the best and brightest in their fields -- people who care about our customers we serve…”
I am so fortunate to have a job where I can make a difference. I have the privilege to lead, coach and guide a team of project managers within IT. This team delivers infrastructure solutions to our business partners, enabling our business partners to better serve our Cargill customers.
I started in Cargill Steel and Wire in 1992 as a business analyst. I moved to Cargill Animal Nutrition in 2001 and managed large projects. Then in 2009, I moved to ITSB as the manager for the Project Management Office (PMO) for North America.
Cargill has a lot of excellent opportunities. We have opportunities to manage a wide variety projects that are global in nature. We also have management and supervisor opportunities for those individuals interested in leading and managing Project Managers.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and two little boys doing any activities outdoors like running, biking, and swimming. I also compete in triathlons around the Twin Cities.
Why We’re Better Together
Together we can and do accomplish great things. I’ve stayed at Cargill because of the amazing people who work here and because of all the opportunities I’ve had in my career, especially when traveling internationally to places like Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Singapore; Barcelona, Spain; and Tokyo, Japan.
