Before I joined Roche I worked for a large Global supply chain company. I have worked for Roche for almost 5 years now. I am certified by CompTIA , Microsoft and Cisco International. I have a very creative mind. I always have a unique perspective when approaching an issue due to my broad range of interests and hobbies.
