Passion for Empowering Small Business Owners
As a Certified FocalPoint Business Coach, I am passionate about empowering small business owners to build stronger organizations and achieve their goals. I believe that people are the most essential component of any successful organization and am dedicated to enhancing the profitability of small businesses so that they can continue to improve the lives of their owners, teams and communities.
I combine two decades of experience in front line sales, sales leadership, operations, and business development with a style that incorporates integrity, mutual respect, and collaboration to successfully develop organizational strategies that help my clients' businesses.
In the Corporate World
I spent 19 years with PepsiCo working on both the Pepsi and Quaker businesses. As a general manger, I led a $25MM organization with 135 employees sales where I gained extensive knowledge of sales, distribution and warehousing. Here I created a culture of trust, loyalty and, of course, results. This focus on my team led me to consistently overdeliver profit targets and to be recognized as top 10% in the country for employee appreciation.
As a sales leader, I led $100MM pieces of business where I excelled at building strong, mutually beneficial relationships and was regarded as a trusted advisor by my customers. I was recognized as one of the Top Women in Grocery by Progressive Grocer and received PepsiCo's Chairman's Ring of Honor award for being one of the top sales leaders globally.
