After leaving Arizona in the late 1980s, I pursued a retail career and worked for several of the top innovative retailers in the US. Employed at the corporate level for 25 years, I managed inventory and buying departments for companies such as The Sharper Image®, Talbots® and was most recently Director of Finance for a division of Orchard Brands™.
At an executive level, I was responsible for finance as well as marketing, web and retail operations. With the transition from brick and mortar stores for a large percentage of buyers and the advent of a very competitive online marketplace, new, cutting-edge and creative marketing programs and campaigns were required. My highly motivated team was responsible for growth of online sales from 15% of the company’s revenue to over 75% in seven years.
Once I left corporate retail, I decided to move back to Arizona to focus my attention on investment properties I had acquired in the Phoenix area over a several year period. These multi-home investments proved to be a fun and challenging career change, but I found myself wanting more. It was then I decided to partner with a team of childhood friends and align with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.
Real estate allows me to tap into my past retail and marketing experience and incorporate what I learned into the fast pace and ever-changing real estate market. My goal is to bring my clients the best possible experience in the sales and purchase of properties.
