In some way we all teach. Whether it’s a mom showing her child how to brush their teeth, a foreman teaching an apprentice or a professor teaching a student – it is in us to teach, observe and learn. I have enjoyed a long career in sales, marketing, communications, and analytics with every opportunity to teach others. I have been in the corporate classroom. the college classroom, the conference workshop as well as a one on one consulting or coaching position. I have always enjoyed the ability to not only teach but to demonstrate either through integrated teaching tools and experiential learning. I teach because I learn more about who I am in the process.

Corporate Sales and Marketing Trainer
For the latest and greatest on my professional and corporate experience see my updated resume here! After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Hawaii Pacific University in 2001 I embarked on my career with telecommunications giant Verizon. In differing capacities I enjoyed the gamut of business sales operations, product management and eventually project management for complex telephony and online services. Much of this involved sales and process training to call center agents at approximately 26 different locations in the US. Later in 2008, after a time as an account executive at FedEx Office (fka Kinko’s), I would join TXU Energy as a telemarketing vendor agent in which some of the duties involved training vendor call center agents about TXU Energy processes and products.
