Graduate Combines Passion for Healthcare and Business through Career at Johnson & Johnson
“I wanted to major in a subject that combined my two passions – healthcare and business,” said Lois Lezuabah, on what initially inspired her to attend Berkeley College. Taking classes both online and on-site, Ms. Lezuabah welcomed every opportunity she could to combine her two passions and sharpen her independent thinking skills. By the time she graduated in April 2016 with a B.S. in Health Service Management, she had already secured herself a position at Johnson & Johnson.
A resident of Somerset, NJ, Ms. Lezuabah held numerous roles and internships at companies such as Audi USA and L’Oreal, Inc. while attending classes, and was also a member of Berkeley College’s Online Student Advisory Board and a mentor in the Peer Mentorship Program. In July 2015, she joined Johnson & Johnson through the company’s Customer Logistics Services College Over-Hire program, where high-performing students are vetted for full-time placement upon graduation. She worked in the Customer Logistics Services as an Export Center of Excellence Analyst before transitioning to the Logistics, Strategic and Analytics department.
Today, Ms. Lezuabah is an Inbound Customer Logistics Analyst for Johnson & Johnson. In this role, she collaborates with various customer logistics partners to ensure the timely and efficient flow of materials into its North American consumer distribution centers. “I was determined to have professional experience within Johnson & Johnson, so much so that I applied for a co-op internship for about two years straight before getting an opportunity,” she said.
Ms. Lezuabah balanced both professional and school work while also giving back to her community. In 2015, as a member of the Berkeley College Honors Program, she was honored with the Honors Service Award for volunteering more than 700 hours. She donated her time through preaching work and participating in walk-a-thons such as the Children’s Specialized Hospital’s Walk N Roll 5K. “My motive for paying it forward has never included recognition. It’s simply about doing the right thing,” she said.
"Distance learning has really played a part in my professional goals," says Berkeley College Online student Lois Lezuabah.
