I’m a native Washingtonian and an experienced sales and marketing professional in travel and tourism, hospitality, new homes real estate, retail and most recently in membership sales with an association. I credit good role models, mentors and an early position with Nordstrom where a foundation for establishing goals and strategic results driven thinking was adopted. My customer service skills are based on developing trustworthy relationships, and practicing active listening skills combined with a servant mentality. This approach has also proven beneficial during the team collaboration process. Today it’s all about metrics, analysis, and return on investment.
One personal achievement was fulfilling a postponed goal of completing my BS degree in Business Management. This experience unleashed an intellectual curiosity. Fueled with this desire, I committed to develop skills in the digital space and achieved an MS degree in Integrated Marketing Communications. In 2017 I added certifications in Google AdWords and HubSpot Inbound Marketing.
Committed to treating colleagues and stakeholders with respect through authentic, meaningful interactions. Dedicated to fostering a collaborative environment to seek sustainable solutions.
