Hello, Kelly. STEM does absolutely extend to Logistics and Supply Chain. In a world where technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate, companies need people with technical backgrounds and STEM based experience to help design, and optimize their Supply Chains. There are many inputs and outputs to the Supply Chain and people with STEM backgrounds and passion for process flow design can typically apply various analytical insights and environmental dependencies to help optimize solutions. Take a look at this article from a trusted Supply Chain network that discusses the need for STEM talent in Supply Chain fields. http://www.apics.org/about/overview/apics-news-detail/2017/06/13/supply-chain-stem

You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>

Hi Kelly. Absolutely!! STEM is a widely used acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science,_technology,_engineering,_and_mathematics

With this broad definition, you can focus course work, studies and career on STEM-related supply chain careers, such as manufacturing engineering (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manufacturing_engineering) or industrial engineering (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_engineering). Additionally, logistics and supply chain requires detailed analysis of aspects like forecasting, inventory management, lead time management... all of which have heavy emphasis on mathematics and modeling. There are many more STEM-related fields that play into supply chain. I recommend taking a look at those wikipedia pages as a starting point.
