You will be hard pressed to find another individual that exhibits more passion and drive to succeed.  Most  would describe me as assertive and persistent who is exceptional at "Cold Call" knowing exactly what to say to get the appointment and how to convert the prospect when he gets there.  I consider myself highly competitive, assertive, take-charge, and risk oriented. I have a high level of sociability with the ability to communicate persuasively that generates buzz and excitement.  My method of selling tends to be very focused on the needs and wants of my prospects and customers working to bring strategic value to each transaction.


Determined to attain a position in sales where my savvy business to business sales skills, ability to understand and convey complex information, self-motivation, and a results-driven work ethic will ignite company market share and boost customer satisfaction.
