How did you first get into your profession?
I started my first business in retail at the age of 24. It was during this season that I learned I had a true passion for marketing. After selling this business, I focused on finishing my degree in business with an emphasis in marketing at UNLV. Right after graduation, I landed a marketing coordinator position with Valley Bank of Nevada, now Bank of America.
What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
Find your passion and work harder and smarter than your peers. Work where you feel like you get up and play every day, then you will know you have found your passion. Always challenge yourself, and set goals and monitor and measure them. When you look back, you will be surprised with how many of your goals you have reached!
What is a little known fact about yourself?
I worked for McDonnell Douglas Corporation as a Business Analyst at Kennedy Space Center during the height of the Space Shuttle Program.
