Hi Everyone! My name is Meghan Lavender and I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I am currently a graduate student at RIT in the MBA program with a concentration in Marketing. I recently graduated from RIT this past May with a degree in Packaging Science and am doing the 4+1 accelerated MBA so I will be graduating this upcoming May!
Although I have not started my career yet, I have completed two co-ops during my undergraduate degree. For my first co-op I worked for Wrigley’s Wm. Jr Company in Chicago, IL working as a packaging engineer on the seasonal team. The seasons in which I was assigned too were Halloween and Christmas so I had a lot of fun creating new packaging for Skittles, Starbursts and Lifesavers! During my second co-op I worked for PepsiCo in Valhalla, NY which is just outside of NYC. I was assigned to the LifeWTR Brand and attended multiple line trials to ensure the implementation of new manufacturing lines and bottle designs worked cohesively with one another. This co-op allowed me the opportunity to travel all across the country to places I have never been before such as California, Kansas, Oklahoma and Rhode Island to mention a few.
Aside from school and work I like to go boating at my cottage, cook, workout, travel to new places and I am also interested in interior design and renovating!
