            Jessica Marron is currently a Global Operations Leadership Development (GOLD) associate at Johnson & Johnson in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During her undergraduate career, she completed two co-ops with J&J. The first in supply chain demand planning for Listerine products and the second in consumer marketing with Neutrogena. Both opportunities, married with her two study abroad experiences, prepared her for challenges to come post-graduation. Jessica highly recommends all students to utilize undergrad as an opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and test the waters; whether that’s living in a new country for a period of time, or trying out a position you never thought you’d be a part of, it will help you grow into a well-rounded and open- minded individual.
