An interview with Tierra Davis, Cameron School of Business Class of 2014, B.S. Business Administration - Human Resources Management concentration
 
How do you feel about your educational experience at Cameron School of Business?
 
I loved my experience with the Cameron School of Business. Dr. Martha Andrews was my advisor, and she was very helpful and encouraging with ensuring that I had all the tools I needed to graduate and start my career. The coursework was relevant to my field, and I felt empowered once I completed all of the educational requirements.
 
What was your favorite part of the concentration you participated in?
 
My favorite part was definitely my internship my last semester with Phoenix Employment Ministry, now known as StepUp Wilmington. It was a great opportunity to work with a nonprofit organization that added so much value to the Wilmington area. Their job placement/life skills programs changed the lives of so many people, and I was my happiest working with them.
 
What are you up to now?
 
I am currently the Scheduling & Purchasing Manager for the Smithfield Foods plant in Wilson, NC. We are by volume, the largest bacon plant in the world. My role includes purchasing, planning, inventory control and warehouse management.
 
What are your hobbies and interests?
 
I would say fitness and cooking. I love trying new recipes, and learning new methods of working out to keep away the potential weight gain with cooking so much.
