I am a graduate student with the Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University seeking employment in the personal luxury sector. I am currently enrolled in the Global Luxury Management program and will receive a Master of Global Innovation Management from both NCSU and SKEMA Business School (France) in December 2014. I am a merchandising professional experienced in social media advertising, brand management, and account management. I have experience in product development, trend recognition, team building within diverse populations, and customer service.  I feel that my skill sets are best suited to a creative role. The ideal position for me would be a role that allows me to be creative and innovative, in terms of merchandising, while contributing effective leadership, relationship-centric client development, and fluid operational processes across several business units.

In the summer of 2008 I worked as an intern with Marriott International as a marketing and sales intern. Based in the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront location, I served as project manager for Marriott’s sponsorship of Artscape 2008. As the official hotel sponsor for the arts festival, it was my job to heighten brand awareness, so I chose to take the philanthropic approach. Instead of operating for profit during the festival, I chose to bring awareness to Marriott’s green initiative and give back to the community. Thus we sold reusable totes and all proceeds went to the Children’s Miracle Network.

In November of 2011 I began my first job with Nordstrom, Incorporated. After only two months on the sales floor I was promoted to Assistant Manager of the Women’s Shoe Department. In my role as assistant manager I managed merchandise presentation, executed company based events and promotions, and coached a team of eighteen salespeople. As apart of managing the merchandise presentation I was given the task of organizing the styling aspect for the store’s social media as well.
