Whether collaborating with team members regarding failures and/or successes for major corporation rollouts and pilots, ensuring best practices are being followed to meet brand standards, or training and mentoring staff, I'm at my best using my creative strategizing and critical thinking skills to increase overall company profitability. Throughout over two decades of success working in progressively responsible leadership roles, I've learned one of the best ways to optimize a team's performance is to not only ensure that each member feels valued, but that they are also aligned with a position that best suits their skill set.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix, am ServSafe certified, and am knowledgeable in multiple Microsoft Office programs including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and SharePoint. I maintain an open-door policy with staff and team members and believe the best approach to success is to have continual communication and a sense of humor. I have an attitude of fearlessness when it comes to developing and maintaining relationships and believe this, coupled with my astute strategic judgment and hard work ethic, has not only served my employers well throughout the years, but also cultivated my strong drive to make a difference.
