Objective

I am very outgoing and creative individual has made a career path in sales and marketing a perfect fit for me. I am extremely social and thrive in a team based environment where working together for a common goal is of utmost importance. Throughout my university education I was involved in various student groups including the entrepreneurial studies program, and worked as a teaching assistant for first year Business Management classes. During my career with Holt Renfrew I was one of two Canadians chosen to participate in an international trade conference with Tiffany & Co. at their New York headquarters.

I am always up for a challenge and and constantly looking to increase my skills set. I can adapt to many situations and am always willing to lend a hand in any way I can, regardless of my job department. I am currently looking for opportunities in sales and marketing that utilizes my current skills set and allows me the opportunity for advancement through new challenges.
