Summary

Edit
I am passionate about the outdoors in an obsessive manner. It overflows into my work; the outdoor industry and education are my specialty. I love to sell product that will help people achieve healthier, more rewarding lifestyles.

I believe I have the skills and work experience you are looking for. I have worked in a leadership role within customer service and camping departments for 3 years at REI in Tustin, CA. I know how to take detailed product knowledge and use it to pair customer needs with gear. This is a skill I have developed over years of teaching including a year in Ecuador and years with new employees at REI.

I lived in Ecuador for one year teaching English, raising money for indigenous peoples, organizing volunteer trips to rural communities. My favorite part of living in Ecuador was the personal challenge to thrive in an unfamiliar culture and create a community of friends and business partners that I continue to foster today.
