Food and sport-related concepts that inspire people into action are my favorite brands to support. My second-grade teacher labeled me a writer, and it stuck. My writing skills were heavily developed through journalism in college, in professional copywriting and lean-aligned project management with a heavy emphasis on organization and efficiency. I'm a natural leader, proven through collegiate-level student government positions, various management roles and five years of entrepreneurial endeavors. I love inspiring and coaching others to unfold their potential to meet personal and team goals.

Sales Operations & Analysis
2009 - 2012
This role supported inside and outside sales by working closely with CIS for database management, relationship and lead analysis, and lead deployment. I chose this route to gain a breadth of skills while still considered the "creative" one of the group. This label allowed me to be known for outside of the box ideas, in which senior level management requested my time and I was continuously given side projects for internal communications and marketing.
