Lara Levine, PMP, MBA, Project Manager, Global Supply Chain Optimization, American Hotel Register:

Vannessa's (CRSM Sophomore) help is in high demand! She made excellent use of her time. While she was waiting for instructions from a co-worker, she did some cleanup in our Event Tracker system. She also helped us "divert" customer orders from one distribution center without available product to another with available product. She did a nice job on working this report of about 5000 lines.
