Michaela D'Intino (BScE’16) is a young alum, having graduated from Civil Engineering at UNB in 2016. But Michaela didn’t go into a typical engineering firm or construction job. She went into supply chain and process improvement work in the food and beverage sector. After working for a number of years with food and beverage giant Pepsi, she’s now with Nova Scotia based Made With Local. She discusses the importance of local supply chains and why she’s passionate about building strong operations at a local Atlantic company. 

 In this episode: 

  • Why Michaela is passionate about local supply chains and building strong operations for a local Atlantic company. 
  • The satisfaction of having personal connections with local suppliers. 
  • The philosophy behind Made with Local. 
  • How supply chain got crazy when COVID-19 took over the world. 
  • The lesson Michaela learned about leading and working with diverse teams. 
  • Tips for quick success after graduation and how to lead as a young professional.
