My road in life has been direct.
I graduated college with a business degree.
I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do but I knew that I wanted to work hard, be part of a team, and feel stimulated by my environment.
After what seemed like an endless job search, I finally landed my first job after college—it wasn’t a very rewarding job, but I took it upon myself to learn as much as I could while I was there.
I left that job and sought assistance from a staffing agency that placed me at a small logistics firm where I quickly fell in love with logistics.
While I knew I wanted to stay in the logistics industry, there wasn’t much growth opportunity at my company, so my supervisor recommended I pursue a position with C.H. Robinson, a much larger company.
After a proactive phone conversation with a C.H. Robinson executive, I got a job at the C.H. Robinson office in Chicago, Illinois.
I’ve been with C.H. Robinson for 14 years now and currently work as the director of sales in our Greenville, South Carolina office.
In addition to my work as the director of sales, I sit on the board of a nonprofit organization that I meet with weekly to discuss how we can make a difference in the community.
Keep following my journey
