Connie is an R&D Technologist who has been with Puratos USA since 2017. She realized her love of food and science at a young age and worked to acquire a BS in… Food Science! She has since worked in various industry settings (from flavor houses to meat-packing plants), but has settled on a career involving bread mixes and improvers with Puratos.
