Tell us a little about your employment (sales) background?
I have always been in customer service and/or sales my entire career. For the past year, I have been in Automotive Sales.

 

What intrigues you about selling cars?
I have always been fascinated by cars, but was unable to learn about them until I started selling them. Now that I’ve opened Pandora’s Box, I can’t seem to learn enough about them!

What do you like to do for fun in your spare time?
I love the great outdoors so surfing, hiking, and traveling. I have happy feet so if the music is on, I am dancing! Sometimes even if there is no music, you’ll catch me doing a silly happy dance.

The weather and there is always something to do.
