Previous Employer/Positions or General Overview of Experience: Most of my experience is in sales and management with some sort of creative twist and a training role. I’ve tutored, recruited, sold life insurance and cars, managed a furniture and electronics store and played music full time. At Team, I get to use a little bit of experience from each field every day.

What do you like to do for fun? I like to try new things but maintain a fairly rigid family calendar. I’ve been skydiving twice and love spontaneous road trips. I front a band and enjoy writing songs and performing. On the other hand, I’m a sucker for cheesy family activities like cutting down our own Christmas tree or going to an old west shoot out reenactment.
Why did you join YPN? I think to be successful at anything, whether that be raising children, making music, or steering your career, a person needs a solid sounding board. I joined YPN because there are so many young professionals involved in the organization who are really passionate about what they do. I hope to grow both professionally and personally with a group of peers to share ideas with, be inspired by, and gain perspective from.
Anything else? Thanks to everyone for being so welcoming!
