Work experience

Account Executive / Independent Representative

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Jul 2012Present

I specialize in helping school leaders, teachers, parents and students improve educational outcomes for all learners by choosing curriculum to assist in best practices for the classroom, including technology and digital curriculum. I am passionate about helping educational providers choose correct and consistent curriculum, supplemental material, digital platforms and professional development, which will ultimately improve both educator and learner.  

As an Account Executive I reached out to each Charter School, (with a focus on independent study programs),  for sales opportunities,  blended learning market opportunities, partnerships, and product development opportunities for the HMH national Adjacent Markets sales team. This included building relationships with local school leaders, staff and parents. Contracted states included Washington, Alaska & California. Oregon, Arizona & Florida were also supported when needed. Currently I serve over 350 Charter Schools in our contracted territories.

Product presentations (both in person or online conferencing), education conferences, association conferences and one on one educator visits were prepared and provided in over 12 States in the past 3 years.
