Ms. Mastin holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Washington State University and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Houston.

Ms. Mastin commented, “The increasing demand for bioplastics and renewable chemicals to meet the sustainable needs of businesses and consumers makes this a market poised for growth.
