I am currently a laboratory analyst with Occidental Chemical Corp and have previous experience as a mental health case manager. I have a unique background ranging from suicide assessment and crisis intervention to biomedical research using viper venom. I'm skilled in hands-on technical support as well as soft interpersonal skills through my lab experience and my time performing suicide assessments. I am also accustomed to the needs of a constantly operating facility and have been able to succeed in my role to keep our site running. I am always looking to move a project forward and to be a useful member of any team.

All this to say that I think I can transfer my quantitative and qualitative work to the sales world! My work experience has contributed to record-breaking years in my local facility, and I'm hoping to do the same for my future sales team. I have been trained in various settings ranging from quiet clinical labs to jails, so I am very coachable and hungry to learn from the best. I've been able to develop new solutions and strategies on the fly and I think I'll be a great fit with your team no matter the subject. Thanks to Prehired's Science Base Sales® methodology I have learned from the best in software sales and I'm looking to show someone what I've been taught.

Also, if you have some dog training tips, feel free to send them my way. I don't know how many more shoes and socks I can replace before I just stick with crocs!
