I have over 25 years of Sales and Marketing. I began my career with small technology start-ups. As these company grew so did my career. I found work with a publishing company first as an Administrative Assistant then as a marketing Coordinator working with a Product Manager of School books. This new position gave me new skills and experiences in marketing and graphic design.
The result of my career trajectory is a well round array of skills sets and processes and the confidence to strike out on my own and offer a vast professional expertise to help other small businesses grow.
