Jess Halter

MBA/MS Alumni Class of 2023

Erb Institute | Business for Sustainability

I am interested in working as a brand manager, internal consultant, or corporate strategist solving strategic problems that lie at the nexus of business operations and sustainable innovation. I plan to use my strengths in project management, creative problem solving, working cross functionally, analytics, and strategy to drive meaningful growth for brands by collaborating with teams across a CPG food or outdoor industry brand. As an a dual-degree business and sustainability masters student at the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, I am focused on honing my ability to drive corporate strategy, solve complex business problems amongst ambiguity, and integrate sustainability throughout the supply chain. Prior to school, I was a project manager working as an environmental consultant running large behavior change initiatives and I also worked in consumer insights where I ran strategic research on innovative advertising strategies. I am also a passionate climber, backpacker, and gardener and I have climbed outdoors in Yosemite and backpacked 211 John Muir Trail from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney.
