Do you have any pets? Yes, a dog named Bailey!

Why did you choose a career in sales? Sales is something I’ve been doing most of my life. The opportunity to listen to a customer’s needs or pain points, and finding ways to solve those is something that is truly satisfying.

How do you motivate yourself? I motivate myself by knowing each day presents opportunities, and it’s up to me to ensure I find myself on the right side of those. If I don’t identify those opportunities, someone else will. That’s enough to keep me going!

What is your best memory of a sale you won? Honestly, to me it’s the sales that you don’t win that you remember the most. What could I have done differently to address the client’s needs? I feel the best part of winning the sale is ensuring you live up to everything you promised.
