Creativity is at the heart of my thought processes. It has been the springboard for starting my own business, developing 'something from nothing' and selling it to multiple markets. In the past decade I've been able to apply what I've learned to the beverage business, which I've found very gratifying. The chance to learn more, do more, inspire more is very exciting to me, and I am anxious to begin writing the next chapter in my career.
I am an energetic and innovative product developer capable of bringing products from inception to rollout with efficiency and speed. As creative problem solver, I delight in working with, learning from, and inspiring others. My dynamic and adaptable leadership has helped deliver highly successful products with market demand and appeal, all the while keeping company goals and customer satisfaction in the forefront.
