Confident.   Strong Work Ethic.   Positive Leadership.   Empathy Skills.   Positive Attitude.   Kind and Charming.   Proven Sales Track Record.    Enjoys Building Relationships.  Outgoing.   Project Management.   Committed to Your Growth.   Over Achiever.   Outside the Box Thinker.   Self- Starter.


These are all traits that I actually possess.  I didn’t just put these words on this piece of paper to catch your eye.  I actually have earned the right to declare that I am all of the above and I wish to use these qualities within the gift industry as a productive team member.  Some of the areas I excel at are Sales, Management, Project Management, Promotions/Events or Administrative.


I have been successful within the Gift and Educational industry for the last 15 years as a store owner and know what I and other boutique owners look for when it comes to doing business with sales reps and their companies.  I would apply that knowledge, my passion for creating relationships and my drive to succeed to bring profits to your bottom line and to building solid accounts.



Being the self-starter, driven Entrepreneur that I am, I am looking for a career as an Independent Sales Rep, Outside Sales Rep or an In-house Sales Rep within the Giftware, Fashion or Jewelry Industry in the state of Minnesota and surrounding states.

Having the experience of being a Boutique owner for many years and an avid essential oil user, I understand the qualities shop owners look for when it comes to doing business with a company or a sales rep.  One of the main qualities is a relationship.  I have found that too many reps just show up on a systematic cycle and are only looking for a quick order.  I don’t do business like that.  It’s a proven fact that people do business with people they trust and have a relationship with.  If given the opportunity, I would establish those relationships and foster them throughout the year.  Not just when the calendar says that I need to touch base with them.
