Hello and thanks for viewing my page!
I am currently looking for employment in the apparel, accessories and manufacturing industry. I have been told at every interview that I am over qualified. So......I think it is fair to say I am smart, a quick learner and see nothing as an obstacle. I am basically open to trying any job, as long as I can use my 25 plus years of experience to advance the company I work for! I am worth taking a chance on!
I am a human rights activist and an animal activist. I hike, kayak, swim and play with my dog as often as possible! I am also willing to locate to anywhere in the world, now that my son is an adult and I am back to adventures!
With a history of vendor negotiation and procurement coupled with expertise and passion for design and merchandising, I seek a position in the creative/fashion industry.
I have been recognized for top notch organizational abilities, having foresight to trouble shoot potential scenarios, and the ability to quickly resolve issues in a creative yet logical manner. Demonstrated effectiveness has been evidenced in my natural ability to juggle multiple priorities and establish and cultivate strong cross-functional relationships.
I enjoy an innovative environment where ideas are generated and encouraged and team contributions are supported and fostered. As a previous business owner, I bring a solid track record of handling the full procurement cycle and effectively negotiating with multiple vendors.
If you are looking for a professional with a unique blend of technical competence, business savvy, and a devoted interest in product merchandising, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you at your convenience to discuss your needs and how I can fulfill them. I will follow up with you in a few days for your feedback. Thank you for your time and consideration.
