Accomplished and successful Education Executive & Account Executive with diverse retail and vendor experience. Education/Training specialist focused on positive delivery of product knowledge, staff training and development, and team building within department. Put a large focus on relationship building with consumers, department teams, as well as amongst ourselves for the drive of sales. Experienced with all regions nationally. My career in the beauty industry started 15 years ago with beauty school. Shortly after, I attended Fashion School in London earning my International Certification in Image Consulting. Once back in the states, I opened up a Salon on NW 23rd Ave. in Portland, OR. After flipping and selling the business for profit, I attended Bobbi Brown's Pro Makeup Course at Emerson College in Boston. I was 1 of 19 people in her first ever college credited program. Fresh from graduating, I had my first Fashion Week experience in New York with Bobbi and her team. That started my mission to boost one’s self-esteem through personal interaction and positive influence. After building my cosmetic foundation with Bobbi Brown, that led to working with CHANEL as a member of their Artistry team and managing a $1M counter. From CHANEL, I moved into the corporate side as an Account Executive for Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, Giorgio Armani Beauty, & Viktor & Rolf Fragrances. I quickly moved up to Education Executive for Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, covering the West Coast Region and the SE Region, along with frequent trips to the NE. I am also a licensed Transformational Coach trained in NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming which is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy. Personal Motto: "Helping one to Embrace, Accept, and Shine their Authentic Self" Favorite Quote: "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
