Nashville, TN Sales/Marketing, Analyst

A formal education will make you a living, SELF-education will make you a fortune. -Jim Rohn. I love to learn. I have always made it a priority to avail myself of every opportunity to learn as much as possible wherever I am. My formal education including a BS in Agribusiness management and an MBA from the University of Arizona were a good start, but I know that there's so much more out there for those willing to look. For me, I learn best by doing, and I'm not afraid to take on ambitious projects that I've never seen before.
