Twelve years after starting college at Drake University, I am in-house counsel for Kemin Industries, Inc. My journey has been one of hard work, dedication, and luck. While we are taught to plan our futures in great detail, we often fail to realize that some of the best and most life changing opportunities happen at a time and in a manner that is unexpected. What I learned during my tenure at Drake, as both a student and employee, is that you have to make the most of each opportunity that is presented to you, embrace change, accept challenges, and never stop trying. Every day is a lesson that will be put to great use at some unknown time in the future. I will share how being a Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology student, general chemistry lab instructor, and law student at Drake prepared me to be a Corporate Regulatory Affairs and Intellectual Property Attorney.
