"This is done through focusing on compliance, managing potential risks, and ensuring our products are used safely across many different applications throughout the value chain," she said.
While she is eager for additional training in the growing industry of product stewardship, Kristie hopes to also help her company identify where it stands with product stewardship philosophies compared to the industry. She plans to then use that information to help her company identify better opportunities for alignment.
One of Kristie's goals within the MSPS program is to build a network of leaders in this industry and she has already started to make connections.
"I'm making a lot of contacts with students in the field, teachers, and even guest speakers," Kristie said.
