Sales & Marketing Specialist

Sun Design Remodeling / Burke, Va.

 Slopes, Sales, and a Life-Long Slogan: 

Over five years ago, I began as the Director of First Impressions and rather quickly transitioned into the role of Sales & Marketing Specialist, combining my sales passions with graphic design. Following this, my role evolved further to now manage a team of two employees with whom I collaborate with while sharing my experience. I love that marketing is a very creative and flexible world that cultivates fun and positivity.


‘Work hard, play hard’ is still the best advice I’ve ever received, and I hope to live up to that saying throughout my career.


I see challenges as opportunities, which motivates me and my team to hit our goals by keeping the environment exciting! To me, a big part of success is derived from loving what you do, sharing those passions with your team, and taking the time to celebrate accomplishments, big and small. One of the ways I celebrate and have fun is by hitting the slopes on my snowboard, which my boss taught me how to do. ‘Work hard, play hard’ is still the best advice I’ve ever received, and I hope to live up to that saying throughout my career.
