I launched my career through a rigorous training program at DICK's Sporting Goods where I learned the basics of merchandise through buying, planning and eCommerce. I was soon placed in a permanent role in Product Development as an Assistant Product Manager in Golf Equipment. I worked to develop all private label golf equipment products through sourcing, design and branding. I quickly learned that my passion is within the marketing and branding segment. I was promoted to move across the country to help lead the Community Marketing Team in the Bay Area.
