  • Managed professional valet and self-parking operations for Opryland, Embassy Suites, the Renaissance and the Marriott at Vanderbilt.
  • Built and managed a team of 28 Guest Service Associates as Valet Chairman for the 2002 Bell South Senior PGA Classic and the 2003 Music City Championship.

I believe this experience transfers directly to the need organizations have concerning how volunteers for special events and employees will be managed, scheduled and compensated.

Sales  – I have worked as a sales agent for American General and a Presales Account Manager for Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated. I gained valuable experience in sales, marketing and client relationship management. While I am not seeking a purely sales position my experience will be helpful in developing new business as well as dealing with vendors and clients.

  • As a Route Specialist for Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated I trained new hires in best practices and lead training sessions preparing them obtain their Class A CDL drivers license.
