Director of Inventory Strategy

 

I like the continued opportunities I have to not only make a direct impact on our business, but to grow my personal skillsets outside of my comfort zone. My co-workers are truly my extended family and the type of people I enjoy hanging out with on a daily basis.

When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time with my fiancée and Labrador-Pointer dog, Lucy. She has enough energy to keep us preoccupied for the majority of the day. And when she’s all tuckered out, she just wants to cuddle with you, which is pretty irresistible.
