Jennifer O’Connell

B.S. in Merchandising Management | Oregon State University (2013)

After graduating with a B.S. in Merchandising Management from Oregon State University, Jennifer found herself exploring roles within many industries in her hometown of Los Angeles. From e-commerce, to video production, to branding, each work focus was not quite the right fit. She found herself working with amazing talent, providing value to clients, learning new tech mediums, but not really satisfied with the long-term outcome. Her interests outside of work lead her towards a new career path; one focused on human-centered design, environmentalism and community engagement.

Enrolling in MCAD’s MA in Sustainable Design program is a new chapter in her career shaped around the┬ádesire to make things that make an impact.
