“An Unexamined Life, is a Life Not Worth Living”- Socrates 15+ years of high-level Sales, managing large accounts, management, & analytics with Fortune 500 Companies such as Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Compass Group.
I successfully managed and monitored over $100M+ in company assets. In addition to my successes, I developed and fostered partnerships across departments and matrixed organizations, including start-ups.
Most recently, I shifted my career from sales and marketing to education and social services. Fortunately, I have been able incorporate community service & worked for employers that have helped me develop life & people skills that are priceless.
My mother and I emigrated from Sierra Leone, West Africa, with little means. Through her struggles to acquire the American dream, I learned a great work ethic and a belief that anything is attainable with hard work, determination, and tenacity. Also, being a Girl Scout from adolescence to my teenage years, I am still committed to the Girl Scout mission of building individuals’ courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place.
I received an MSc in Digital Marketing Analytics from Salford Manchester University and an MBA and MA in Leadership Organization from Saint Mary’s College.
I am also on the Advisory Board for California State University and previously on BoldlyMe, a non-profit organization that advocates mental wellness.
