Work History

Apr 2012Jan 2016

Logistics & Customer Service Manager / Investor Liaison

Beacon Audio

As one of the founding members of the company I was involved in every aspect of the business.

As Logistics & Customer Service Manager I was responsible for coordinating and overseeing product shipments, every step, from exiting our partnering factory in China, to our warehouse shelves in Salt Lake City. In addition, I was in charge of warehouse, shipping and customer service team members, working with and for them to ensure a positive work environment, and customer satisfaction.

As an Investor Liaison I cultivated relationships with potential investors. This ranged from supplying them with brand, product and financial information, to meeting face to face to discuss where our visions intersected, and how partnering together would enable both them and us to flourish.

Trainer / Assistant to Operations Manager

Blue Stakes of Utah

After just two years with the company, I developed all-new training material for the employees, as well as conducted continuing education classes for associate contractors. I also trained all new employees, as well as administering quarterly on-going training courses for the entire call center.

Non-Profit Development & Fund Raising

MCIN

MCIN is an intense two-year, hands-on program, based out of Phoenix, AZ and Los Angeles, CA (spending time in both cities throughout the program). The program is designed to teach not only the skills to develop and raise money for non-profit and faith-based organizations, but to instill character, integrity and an unparalleled work ethic into its students as well.

During my tenure at MCIN, I worked to develop and raise money for two neighborhood after-school programs; develop, plan, coordinate and fund raise for Christmas in Paradise, a yearly parade and gift distribution program in one of Phoenix's most underserved housing developments; and raised funds for the homeless shelter, food panty, and work program at the Los Angeles Dream Center. Please feel free to ask for further examples from my time in this diverse program.

Extracurricular Activities

Cherokee Street

As a resident of the Marine Villa Neighborhood in South City, I play a variety of roles in the events that take place throughout the year. These events include: The People's Joy Parade, Cinco de Mayo, The STL Swap Meet, The St. Louis Jazz Crawl, The Cookie Spree, Three-on-Three Basketball Tournament, etc. 

Summary

I believe in working for a purpose, not a paycheck. If everyday I can be stretched, growing toward my maximum potential, and enable others to do the same, I feel that purpose fulfilled.
