After graduation, I went to work at EDS in customer relations for Cadillac/GM. After the Fall of 1997, I enrolled in the full time MBA program at Michigan State University and majored in Marketing. I interned at GM between my first and second year, and after graduation, I accepted an offer with GM in Detroit. 23 years later I am still with GM and currently working in a Product Marketing Manager role.

Mrs. Jamison writing exploration class. I Learned so much about other people in that class as she really encouraged us to open up and share our stories.

Treat others the way you would like to be treated and you will see how great people can be.
