I create and lead teams. Cultivating a team mentality, and motivating these teams with energy and passion to create "business wins". I strive to involve each team member in the process so that we cultivate ownership of our vision within each team member. Throughout my career I have primarily focused on market driven product development, communication and business development strategies and execution. I am known for my enthusiasm building relationships, businesses and brands in order to achieve our business goals. I have strong B2C and B2B experience and a talent for focusing product development efforts on emerging market needs and trends. I have been a SCUBA instructor, ski instructor and a kayak guide, along with a five year stint as director of marketing and product development with Johnson Outdoors, and would love to once again reunite my personal passion for outdoor adventures with my career. I have amassed a record of proven leadership through team building, applying a creative and innovative mindset to problem solving, strategic planning, partnership building and effective in-market communication.
