Kate Drummond

MBA/MS Program 2015

Kate joined the Erb Institute after six years in Washington, DC working on Capitol Hill, in government relations, and in nonprofit environmental policy advocacy. Her Potomac Fever broke when she finally realized that government alone couldn’t create a more sustainable future. Kate is interested in the study of leadership and integration of sustainability into corporate strategy. She is also equally interested in learning how to shift aggregate demand towards sustainably raised meat and produce, and understanding the systems that support the status quo. An avid promoter of women in leadership in all sectors, Kate hopes to see the gender balance in b-school shift toward parity before she graduates. Kate graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama with a bachelor's degree in business administration and environmental studies. In her free time, Kate loves to play ultimate Frisbee, spend time in the kitchen, and talk politics.

Denise Miller

MBA/MS Program 2017

Prior to joining the Erb Institute, Denise worked with organizations within India, Guatemala, Japan, and the United States, each of which shared the common focus of improving different facets of society. After graduating from Emmanuel College in Boston with a BA in English Literature, her career began with the Clinton Foundation Health Access Initiative in India with a focus on pediatric HIV/AIDS to promote access to treatment and support. She then worked with MSD Pharmaceuticals (an affiliate of Merck and Co., US) to design and implement the corporate social responsibility package for India. Next, she traveled to Guatemala to support green startups and bring alternative energies to communities lacking infrastructure. In her most recent position with the agribusiness Bolthouse Farms in California, she gained experience operating an international production and supply chain focusing on exports to Japan, where she observed firsthand how the utilization of sustainable practices not only benefit society and the environment, but also make good business sense. Denise was raised on a small farm in rural Montana. From working on the farm in her youth, to working in development, to guiding a corporation towards good corporate citizenship, and finally to her role at an international agribusiness, she has witnessed the stake private industry has in social change and plans to harness the power of business to make a sustainable, positive social impact.
