Nneka Carr is a native New Yorker, born and raised in the borough of Queens. Her passion for communications led her to attend Temple University where she majored in JPRA (Journalism, Public Relations, and Advertising) where she received a Bachelor of Arts.

She worked over 4 years in public relations with a focus on travel and tourism before making a shift into pharmaceutical sales. How’d she make that transition?

“Statistics show that individuals change careers on average five times throughout their working career! Times are changing when you don’t stay at one job doing the same thing for several decades, but rather explore to the fullest how you can contribute to the world with your strengths while building additional skill sets with each new venture.

Nneka has been successfully working in pharmaceutical sales for close to 10 years. She has sold in over six therapeutic areas and 15 different products, winning several sales champion awards as well as trips to Mexico and Europe.

In 2009 Nneka earned her MBA from LIU C.W. Post. In her free time, she loves baking, dancing, reading, writing, yoga and volunteering. She is also a member of the illustrious organization of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
