A consistent top performer, I am looking to sell surgical and medical devices to current and new customers.My greatest strengths include my ability to form deep partnerships with my customers and creating action within those offices.  I enjoy selling and have strong experience with developing new markets, strengthening networks/referrals, and navigating challenging payer environments.  With my background in both sales and marketing, I have thorough scientific knowledge that I can easily communicate.  I am not a job hopper and am looking for a company I can have a career in and contribute to, for many years to come.
