Freelance Sales, Marketing & Customer Service Professional
Leader. Manager. Connector.
How can I help your company?
National Sales Manager
I enthusiastically develop and leverage people's talents to lead successful teams. During my tenure with Coated Abrasive Products Company, we were recognized as the 309th Fastest Growing Private Company in the US by Inc. Magazine.
Customer Service Manager
Taking the time to develop a culture of exceptional customer care and ethical business practices factor into all of my business plans. This contributes to customer loyalty & growth and it earned my former company, Abrasive Resource, the Better Business Bureau's Integrity Award.
Director of eCommerce
I successfully created an eCommerce division for Starcke Abrasives, selling over a $1,000,000 of annual revenue on their eCommerce websites as well as Amazon, eBay & Walmart.
We need to embrace technology to drive market penetration for inside sales. I create & implement targeted marketing campaigns that leverage both trained inside sales teams and digital marketing to convert & retain customers.
Trainer & Coach
I am a connector. A team builder. I have a hands-on approach & a competitive spirit. I can train your team and make it fun. People like to work with me and for me. That's why the Lash Group hired me as an Interim Program Manager to lead a team of 65 contingent workers in a remote environment during the pandemic.
I enjoy marketing, and have creative ideas about how we can grow your business. But I also understand ROI and how to analyze key performance indicators to make sure your marketing is profitable & that we are staying on a growth track.
