I have been servicing the meeting and event planning industry for 14 years and other clients nationwide for over 24 years. I received my BS in Business Administration from Emporia State University and after graduating, owned and operated an apparel factory in Kansas for 20 years. After selling the factory, I became the general manager of an apparel company in Iowa that sold into the promotional industry. I successfully turned the company into a profitable business, working with nine factories nationwide to produce my products. I then ventured into the sales aspect of promotional products, leaving the manufacturing side behind.
In 2010, I received a prestigious designation, CAS, Certified Advertising Specialist, from PPAI, Promotional Products Association International. Less than two percent of sales professionals in this industry have obtained this certification. Years of learning the ins and outs of the industry through classes are required to complete this designation.
I have been active in KCMPI for over seven years, serving on the Board of Directors for three of those years. I was selected “Supplier of the Year” in 2008 and again in 2012. I am a member of KCMPI and the Heartland Chapter of PCMA.
