More Information

Welcome to my ePortfolio! Here you will find some of my current work and my education and career interests.

I'm an AMM major with a focus of Apparel Production with experience in the following areas:
textile science and testing, merchandise buying, production line, merchandising, imports/exports, illustration, apparel construction, quality control, pattern making, leadership, interpersonal communication, and soft skills.

In addition to my studies, I am a current member of AATCC (American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists) at Cal Poly Pomona. I joined this particular club because I am interested in furthering my knowledge on textile science and possibly work in the field in the future. I never pictured myself in textile buying or textile science until I took classes in the subject that sparked my interest and passion.

In addition to working as a textile buyer or in textile science, I would love to work for a company that manufactures home goods or casual wear for women or children. In five years, I see myself in a buyer position or merchandising supervisor.

I have included my resume below. Thank you for your interest!
