In December of 2008, I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Marketing. Prior to my graduation, I was hired by Whirlpool Corporation as a Sales Development Representative selling and training in Albany, NY.

At the University of Florida, I pursued a degree in Marketing. I now have specialized skills in identifying consumer needs and communication strategies. My highly driven personality enabled me to graduate Cum Laude from the University of Florida in 2008. From my marketing internship with Premier Productions and my current position working for Whirlpool as a Sales Development Representative, I have knowledge and experience in various selling techniques, sales analysis, sales presentations and owning and growing a sales territory.

As a Sales Development Representative for Whirlpool Corporation, I have gained valuable sales experience in a highly competitive market. In this position I travel over a 350 mile radius to 70 accounts a month, schedule and host large and small trainings and sales presentations and sell to associates at large retail accounts (Lowes, Home Depot, Sears, Best Buy). I also lead and participate in conference calls and analyze sales data to build and execute business plans to meet sales quotas and drive results. The Sales Development position has taught me the importance of building meaningful relationships with diverse individuals to help drive sales.
