Coques Harrison, Distribution Center Manager, is a dynamo at our Sacramento, California warehouse. She is forward-thinking, collaborative and simply a joy to work with.
Coques was born and mostly raised in Sacramento, California. She relocated to Tennessee during her middle school years and eventually returned to her hometown after graduating from the University of Memphis with a double major in Business Administration and Accounting. While looking for a job in college, she inadvertently started her career in logistics while working for FedEx. After catching the distribution bug, she then quickly moved up the ranks at OnTrac, and Walgreens, before joining the Soligent team last year.
When she’s not being a powerhouse at work, she can be found relaxing with her son Adam, daughter Aniyah and partner Lashonda enjoying a big bowl of pasta from one of the many amazing restaurants in the Sacramento area. To learn more about our team member Coques, check out her Q&A below.
