My joyous career journey began at age 12 with my own business selling candy in junior high school, in Biloxi, Mississippi. As a result of a family move the following year to Seoul, South Korea, I worked as a grocery sacker at the Yongsan Army Base Commissary, in a 'tips only' position. I gave a pitch in English or Korean to passionately persuade customers to choose my lane, and have the opportunity to earn their tips. My soul for Sales was birthed, and I also learned the importance of marketing myself to stand out from the competition. What a fantastic foundational lesson for my future career!
Let's fast forward a few years. My collegiate background includes earning my bachelor's from LSU-S (Shreveport, LA), and then earning dual master's degrees from Florida International University (Miami, FL), and Northwestern University (Evanston, IL). I began my career with marketing and branding powerhouse General Mills (Minneapolis, MN) in the Betty Crocker Division. It was a great opportunity to learn from the best of the best. I went on to have a successful career, including Sales, in corporate America for several more years, which included other Fortune 500 companies.
In addition to being a guest lecturer at Northwestern University (on Entrepreneurship) and Louisiana State University in Shreveport (on Business), I am a member of the global executive leadership team at Women's Speakers Association (WSA). I am also a member of the Professional Speakers Guild (PSG); Greater Detroit Chapter of American Society For Training & Development (GDASTD); Northwest Louisiana Chapter of American Society For Training & Development (ASTDNLA); Detroit Chapter of Society For Human Resource Management (DSHRM); and others.
