Informational Interview w/ Research & Design Packaging Engineer – Colleen Anthes


Colleen Anthes graduated from Michigan State in 2015 with a B.S. in Packaging.

During her time at Michigan State, she worked as a student executive within the Professional Development & Personal Enrichment group at the MSU Alumni Association, where she executed alumni engagement efforts and curated online content. She also conducted research on bio-based flexible materials for the School of Packaging.

Upon graduating, she moved to White Plains, NY to start working for PepsiCo as a Packaging Engineer. She has since moved to Chicago and currently works on cost savings and productivity initiatives for the Nutrition group, working for beverages brands such as Gatorade, Tropicana and Naked Juice. She enjoyed balancing her time between the office and traveling around the country to different bottling facilities.

Despite growing up in small-town St. Johns, MI, she’s loving big-city Chicago life. Outside of work, you can find her cheering on MSU from Chicago Spartan bars or playing with her cat, Pacey.
