I am currently working for a sports marketing company managing the direct sales team for clients like the Los Angeles Angels, Anaheim Ducks, and many others. However, growing up traveling competitively within the extreme sports industry I have always aspired to work within sports apparel business with the companies I grew up with.
Upon graduating from the Academy of Art University with a journalism degree I landed an amazing role at a startup luxury jewelry design company in San Francisco, Ashley Morgan Designs, as the Director of Operations. Within the three years I was there I was able to help take the company from personal clients and in-house trunkshows to stores such as Neiman Marcus and hosting events like the annual Global Green USA Gala and
getting spots in magazines like People and InStyle.
Working for a small company gave me the experience in understanding all aspects of a business, as opposed to being subjected to one role. Because of this I worked on large orders and PO’s, sourcing from vendors, marketing, social media, writing, website posting, public relations as well as overseeing all production, etc. I also was able to work in design and creative direction to make sure our brand was always ahead of the curve. I would love nothing more than to use my strengths that I have acquired over the years of schooling and working, within the industry that I have always grown up around and know so well.
