About   (request update)
Born and raised in Washington, DC, I am a results-driven Product / Brand Manager with 5+ years experience managing the profitability and growth of products/brands through planning, communication, marketing and development efforts. Recently, as a Product Manager for a global SKA manafacturer I was solely responsible for three small kitchen appliance categories that comprised over $5 million of company revenue. As a Brand/Product Manager in Hawaii I sourced, co-developed and launched 4 new food products over an 18 month period which garnered 67% of total market share within 22 months.

I received a BS in Marketing, an MBA with a Marketing concentration and I am currently working towards a PhD in Management.

I have three fantastic children who are happy, healthy and respectful. It doesn't hurt that they are also straight A students and incredible athletes. Writing this all down makes me feel very blessed, but sometimes I forget to appreciate all the things that God is doing for me right now. My goal is to take time and say "thank you" to God everyday.

Please feel free to ask me a question about brand management. Many business owners think that salesmanship and marketing are enough to succeed in business. Bzzzt! Wrong answer! There's another level to which all businesses should aspire: Creating a brand. Branding is not marketing. Rather it is an integral part of your marketing strategy. It's also an important part of how you interact with clients, prospects, vendors, employees, and anyone else with whom you come in contact. Branding creates an image. Proper branding creates loyalty. Remember PERSONAL branding is just as important as product/service branding.
My Interview Question
Do you have any questions about Brand Management? It can be a question about personal branding or business branding.
