After earning a Bachelor degree in Photo Journalism in 2006, I’ve had a variety of professional work experiences. While at Crocs, I opened more than 100 accounts during 2007 and increased the sales in the Southern California territory from $1.5 to $4.6 million. Before working for Emu, I worked as a Sales and Leasing Assistant at Cushman & Wakefield. The position evolved into working on some larger investment projects and even obtaining a California Real Estate license. Durning my four years with Emu Australia, I opened over 120 new accounts and continued to develop existing accounts. With a large geographic territory, I had extensive travel time and a wide range of accounts. It was at EMU that I was first able to be a part of the Product team both in the USA and Australia. At the Frontier Group my responsibilities include sales, marketing & merchandising for our brand's presence within the retail stores in OR, WA & AK.
Being successful in sales, product, marketing & merchandising is both an art and an understanding of human psychology. I have had an opportunity to work with a range of personalities and I understand what motivates consumer behavior. My people skills, drive and dedication have allowed me to keep my accounts ordering and my employers happy. The foundations of my success lie in my organization abilities, attention to detail, cultivating customer relationships, resourcefulness, work ethic and willingness to work independently or with a team.
