Kathryn BernellJob before MMM: E-commerce at Clif Bar
Why did you choose MMM?
MMM brings to the table critical skills in driving the innovation process and conducting ethnographic research, while my MBA has played a role in my ability to qualify new business opportunities and implement quantitative frameworks.
What has been your favorite Kellogg/MMM memory?
The first quarter, we culminated our design class with a mock-pitch competition that evaluated the desirability, viability, and feasibility of our solutions. Our group won the competition with an ecosystem that tackled food waste. The real fun though, came from the work, meetings, and time invested in building our program; I got to know and learn actively from all four of my incredibly talented team members. The class project has been morphed into a food waste venture, and I am now in the process of bringing the startup to market.
What is your favorite gadget/product/service and why?
I love Mealmade in San Francisco. Literally, I love it. Their food is truly best in class by way of their quality and novel offerings. I make sure to order it each time I go back to visit SF.
The trip you are daydreaming about?
I want to trek around Patagonia, take a cruise to Antarctica, and go ice climbing and skiing! I have the trip itinerary already created and hope to make this happen in the near future.
What's on your bucket list?
Finding a way to share a meal with Ina Garten and speaking at The Moth!
