Meet Oiza Garba '00

Where do you live?Tanya Hutchins 1

Houston, TX.

What do you do for work currently?

Senior Finance Manager, Baker Hughes (managing 4 businesses/, sales/commercial teams to grow Revenues and Profitability)

What did you learn at IC that helped you get to where you are today (personally or professionally)?

Being nominated for and accepted into a scholastic Internship via SEO with Merrill Lynch, this set the stage for a Resume that gets noticed. IC provided the backdrop for that.  Furthermore, earning a degree from a program that’s well recognized in the New York area, underpinned success of the foundation of my career; positioning for growth outside of New York and abroad. 

How did you get involved with IC after graduating (did you volunteer? Did you speak in a classroom? Attend events?)?

Having moved away from New York, I unfortunately was unable to return to Ithaca, nor been involved in Alumni events.  On a small scale however, I have made certain IC donations during campaigns.

Why do you LOVE IC?

It’s where I was groomed, and set the stage for the trajectory of my life (professionally and personally).
