She prepared through her SAP education, earning a SCM500 for processes in procurement, a SCM520 in purchasing, and a certificate in logistics, materials, quality and supply chain management. Ms. Girod began her career as a purchasing agent for another big company before she was recruited by Cameco Corporation, the largest uranium producers in the world. She started out by working as a corporate buyer for 8 years, and then became a senior analyst in the inventory system, handling low-dollar low-risk materials.
