Wanted to provide some information and details about myself so you can learn more about my education & experience to hopefully help you make an informed decision if it makes sense to partner with me for your branding & marketing evolution.
Did you know that more than 80% of the marketing agency professionals you work with don’t have a degree in marketing? We all know experience counts but without a formal B.A. or M.A. in marketing, it’s like trusting a nurse to perform heart surgery because she’s been in the O.R. for years.
I was lucky enough to go to a college that offered marketing as an official business major. Because marketing internships were scarce where I lived, I ended up getting a commission sales position at a high end retailer at South Coast Plaza, CA. This ended up being the perfect job while I was going to school because I was able to sell to and develop relationships with multi-million dollar business owners, famous actors, athletes, business leaders, and more. Some of these folks gave me insights and education that can’t be taught in school so the combination of school and work gave me a very well rounded education in sales and marketing.
After college, I picked up additional education and experience working with mom and pop companies to billion dollar manufacturing organizations, having great success working with both. After 15 years in the corporate world working in sale and marketing for manufacturers, I opened my own marketing agency. My mission was and still is to assist manufacturing and it’s channel sales partners to increase their marketing return on investment, increase sales, and develop a stronger brand presence.
