Hello! My name is Samia Anderson and I'm currently a manager at J & H Aitcheson (a div of Hajoca Corporation) in Fredericksburg, VA, a wholesale plumbing business. I started my career with Hajoca immediately after receiving my Bachelor of Science in Global Supply Chain and Operations Management at the University of South Carolina. I spent my first three years as a Management Trainee at a sister location, Hughes Supply, in Charlotte, NC where I immersed myself in each role (warehouse, counter, inside sales, and outside sales). I then spent an additional year in outside sales at Hajoca in Greensboro, NC, until I had the opportunity to run my own location at J & H Aitcheson. It's been a fun journey and a learning process - I joined with no knowledge of wholesale plumbing, and some background in customer service. Over the years, I've learned how to become an asset to our customers - providing them with resources and knowledge to help them run a successful business. I'm excited to share my experiences with the students within this program.
