I have over 12 years of experience working in the outdoor retail industry. Throughout my career I have gained priceless knowledge and skill sets from working in both retail and shop settings. With a strong work ethic and passion for being busy, I am a perfect fit for any establishment. I currently am a sales manager/lead bike mechanic at Down Wind Sports in Marquette, MI. Not only do I turn wrenches and tune skis, but I take care of the customer’s everyday needs, handle all warranty claims, organize employees, and order/stock the retail establishment. I have built strong relationships with customers and the brands that I have worked with. I regularly help organize and plan special events with Down Wind Sports, including: The Michigan Ice Festival, The Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium, and Ladies of the Lake Sea Kayak Symposium. From my experience, I have excellent organizational, managerial, and communication skills. I also possess a strong background in Microsoft Office and social media. My goal is to continue to follow my passion of a career in the outdoor industry. My knowledge is growing daily and I am always ready to take the next step. I hope to not only continue to grow in the world of outdoor sports, but to help the industry as a whole grow and flourish.
