ABOUT ME

I am a proactive, customer-focused, results-driven CPG professional with experience on both the retail and account sides of the Food Industry.   I see the bigger picture and consider the end result more critical than those little steps in between that got me there.  All a part of the job!  I believe that the more facets of a job or a company that I know, the more valuable of an employee I will be. It helps me become better-rounded and gives me the ability to approach each situation uniquely.  What sets me apart is my passion, professionalism and adaptability.
