Q+A with DSM Regional Key Account Manager Adriana Molina-Hoeppner


PFS: Please share more about yourself.

AH: I studied food engineering and have worked in sales for various food ingredients throughout my career. I enjoy working in multicultural teams and have spent the past several years volunteering with PFS as a Client Lead for a couple of different clients.

PFS: Why did you get involved with PFS?

AH: I joined PFS because I wanted to help and give back a little of what I receive every day.

PFS: How does volunteering with PFS help DSM employees live out their purpose?

PFS: What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned while volunteering with PFS?

AH: You can have a great impact and help others with little time investment.

PFS: If someone is interested in volunteering but may be hesitant to start, what would you say to them?
