I was born and raised in Monroe, Wisconsin on a small dairy farm where I spent many years milking cows and running a dairy herd management program. My weekends and summers were spent working on the farm, where I learned the value of hard work, responsibility and patience.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 2012, where I majored in Business Administration and Human Resources, with an Agribusiness minor. After college, I started working for a large catalog company, where I gained valuable knowledge understanding the customer’s desire for unique products. I spent a lot of time working on private label items, customizing specific programs in kitchen housewares and developing new products/ideas.
My experience creating customs programs and sourcing product overseas led me to my current position as Sales Account Assistant at DDI. I have been with DDI since July of 2015.
