Sustainable management grad makes a difference for Georgia-Pacific
UW Sustainable Management student Jessie Johnson is headed toward a successful career. Johnson, who graduated from UW-Green Bay in May, 2018 with a Master of Science in Sustainability Management, landed a job at Georgia-Pacific in 2014. She started as a lab technician while she was still in school working on her Bachelor’s in Integrated Leadership Studies with an emphasis on Environmental Policy at UW-Green Bay. Johnson moved up the business ladder rather quickly, as in 2017, a year after graduation, she entered the Environmental Entry Level Professional Program at Georgia-Pacific in Atlanta. The training enabled endless opportunities; her next role could be anything from an environmental engineer in the air, water, or waste departments to a product stewardship associate position or she could become a member of the corporate sustainability team in Atlanta. She is happy to pursue a career that lines up so well with her educational background. Read more about Jessie’s journey here.
