Before I started working with Pursuit, I got my degree in Child and Adolescent Development from Point Loma Nazarene University and had been working as a preschool teacher for the last 6 years. Since I have started with Pursuit however, I’ve not only expanded my knowledge of marketing and management but I have also had the opportunity to work on a few different campaigns, my favorite of these being Whip it. I enjoy Whip it because I love getting to meet and greet new people while at the same time teaching them about an amazing product and getting to see them become just as excited about it as I am. One of my favorite experiences with this company so far was when I was fortunate enough to be trained by a national trainer. In just a few days I was able to develop my skills even further with one of the best and take in all the advice I could obtain in such a short period of time. Some of the best advice I’ve received in my time here thus far was when another leader told me stop worrying about all the things I have no control over. In life, we cant control all of our surroundings, so it’s important to only put our time and energy into what we can control, like our attitudes, in order to maximize our day! So, when I’m not at work I put that energy towards the things I love doing, like camping, watching movies and spending time with my friends and family.

Best experience with PPM?: My best experience with Pursuit was traveling to the office in Cincinnati, Ohio to learn the Whip It campaign for Walmart.

Best advice ever received: Focus on the things you can control and take full responsibility for your actions.

Here at PPM, we understand the great deal of work and care our clients have put into creating their brands and desire to treat each campaign with the same consideration. My goal is to create a team that brings the passion of our clients directly to consumers. Since our founding in 2016, our emphasis has been on hiring based on the intangible qualities that seem to be much harder to teach. We place a high value on traits such as leadership and charisma, while also looking for the personal discipline and responsibility to back it up. My goal was to find students of business, as well as life, each of whom bring a unique perspective to our growing team. I’m excited for you to get to look at some of our senior team members and get small dose of what makes our culture so special.
Current student at Sierra College studying business administration. I have a history working in fast food restaurants and was a barista before starting at Pursuit.

I received a B.S. in Business Administration with a Major in Marketing at the University of Nevada, Reno and I worked for two years at the El Dorado Resort and Casino in Reno before starting at Pursuit.
Favorite Campaign and Why: My favorite campaign is Sonic Comfort personal massagers. One, because it’s the product I enjoy using the most myself. And two, because I enjoy how much I get to build a relationship with my customers and potential customers in that campaign.
Best Experience with Pursuit?: My best experience with Pursuit was attending the Top Leaders Conference in Dallas, Texas with my partners Jared and Jordan. At the conference, I was able to network with owners and other top leaders from across the nation. This event really helped me to see the bigger picture of what is possible in this business.
Best advice ever received: The best advice I’ve ever received was from Gretchen. She told me to have a system for regaining my attitude whenever I lose it. The system she suggested went something like this 1) Whenever something makes you lose your attitude write it down. 2) Think why did this make me lose my attitude? And what can I learn from this experience? 3) Be a problem solver. Ask how can I regain my attitude the next this happens? Having the solution is where your value as a trainer comes from.
Fun Fact!: I’ve got the best dance moves in the office.
Before starting with Pursuit, I took computer science in college, and worked at BJs for about a year and a half.
My favorite campaign is Whip it! I love the fact that I can manage a crowd of 18 people in order to have them listen to a presentation about this client.
The best advice that I’ve received is that the only person who can hold myself accountable to personal growth is me. It really put into perspective for me how much of this business is within my power to change when I focus on myself.
A fun fact about me is that when I was little I spent 5 years living in England with my family and went to primary school there.
