Personal Summary

I am a seasoned sales professional, and I have been dedicating the last two years of my life to the Pro-Life movement at Universities and High Schools.

I love what I do here at Students for Life, but realistically, I need to make more income to be a better provider for my family.

I am hoping to work for a company to where my skills can grow the Catholic mission while building a career to take care of my family.

If you find my skills, passion, and experience to be a fit for your company, then I am grateful for the opportunity to be considered.
