Your Job Title:
Director of Business Development
A typical (or not so typical) day-in-the-work-life for you?
Developing new business, meeting with clients, phone calls, managing our intercompany communications and tracking of data, and working with vendors.
How did you get your current job in fitness and exercise?
CardioKinetics is a family business and there was a need to help develop more business and streamline operations here. I felt that I could help fulfill that role so I jumped on board.
What skills were you born with and what skills have you learned along the way?
I feel that I am blessed with good communication skills and a passion to help and serve other people. The aspect of physical health is critical to all aspects of health and wellness. I had to learn the specifics of exercise physiology, personal training and risk factor interpretation along the way through certifications and in depth training.
What advice do you have for others wanting to be just as successful and fulfilled as you?
A job can be very rewarding and God has wired people to be passionate about different things. Don’t focus on “success” but focus on what you are called to do and it will work out.
If you could be paid for your job with something other than a paycheck, what would it be?
Hugs and Smiles are good enough for me as long as they would be put food on my table.
