Food For Thought

At age 17 I established and implemented the Service Enhancement Team at my first tax-paying job as a McDonald’s shift manager. Dedication to customer satisfaction is the cornerstone of who I am.

With over seven years as a client-services and marketing expert, I have developed a skill set which makes me both highly productive and successful. My talents include meeting and exceeding client project objectives, strengthening account relationships, demonstrating effective leadership, forming a cohesive work environment and creative problem solving. Agile methods and their various practices are my most commonly used approach. I’m an award-winning professional with partnerships which include celebrities, diverse businesses and expert agencies.
