I have over 17 years of professional sales and marketing experience, with the last 11 spent developing and managing over 30 independent retailers as well as national accounts across 5 northwestern states. Based on personal experience, I am able to work independently and have an affinity for relationship building with everyone from the buyer to the sales associates. My personality is an energetic and outgoing professional demeanor. My early experience in graphic design helped me develop a keen eye for merchandising for retail applications. My passion for travel and the love of the outdoors led me to the Pacific Northwest and I have enjoyed the opportunity to travel the region developing accounts and contacts that I maintain to this day. I am active in cycling, fly fishing, snowboarding and stand up paddle boarding.
