I have come up through the ranks of some of the Nations premiere arts organizations.
I began my career in the arts 25 years ago on the telephone for the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC. I've had the privilege of working and consulting with some of the top organizations in the world including SCU*Presents at Santa Clara University, Broadway San Jose, San Jose Repertory Theatre, San Jose Cleveland Ballet (now Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley), Opera San Jose, San Jose Children's Discovery Museum, San Jose Museum of Art, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Arena Stage in Washington, DC, San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Symphony in Orange County, California, Mirvish Productions in Toronto, Ontario, Sydney Symphony in Sydney, Australia, North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, North Carolina and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
I am a published author and an award-winning marketer in the areas of emarketing, customer service, sales performance, sales leadership and web based leadership training. With 25 years of experience in sales, marketing and customer service that is grounded in research, I am tough, organized, and down-to-earth and believe that exceptional customer service is what sets any organization apart. It is the combination of these qualities that has brought me success in my career.
