She shares her time between managing a team of supply chain auditors in the US and Canada and providing advisory services to a portfolio of clients in the timber, palm oil, textiles, soy, beef, coffee and other natural resource sectors to support them in their goals to meet sustainability commitments and legal requirements.
After thinking I would focus my career on animal conservation, I started traveling extensively and met humans all around the world. My personal vision was shaped through these human experiences and I started firmly believing humanity was the key to sustainability. Having found a workplace and a job that is meaningful to me, and being part of a global organization that shares my vision is truly rewarding.
Noemie is responsible for managing a team of supply chain auditors in the US and Canada. She is directly involved in all aspects of supply chain certification assessments and audits including scheduling, project management, customer service, technical guidance, consultant management and quality control.
Noemie also dedicates some of her time to Preferred by Nature’s Tailored services division, providing advisory services to a portfolio of clients in the timber, palm oil, textiles, soy, beef, coffee and other natural resource sectors to support them in their goals to meet sustainability commitments and legal requirements.
Noemie began her career, overseas, as a Junior Programme Officer in Honduras, working within coffee-growing communities.
