Sales Development Representative, Toronto
My loves of sales began early in the summer of third grade when I set up a makeshift refreshment stand for construction workers overhauling our neighbourhood’s roads. A few years later in grade 6, I spotted a gap in the schoolyard refreshment market as vending machines were not permitted on campus. I began selling soda out of my locker and ended up selling over 500 cans that year. Ever since closing my first sale many summers ago my passion for sales has grown. Between the authentic interactions and rewarding feeling of closing a deal, I knew I had a future in sales.
I enrolled at Ryerson University in 2013 in the Marketing and Economics program at the Ted Rogers School of Management. From there I gained experience in consumer facing sales and always enjoyed interacting with a diverse range of clients. Meeting and conversing with new people every day was something I genuinely enjoyed and emboldened my passion for sales. During my third year at Ryerson I was hired as the VP corporate relations for the Ryerson Marketing Association. In this role, I was tasked with selling the RMA to potential sponsors, along with scouting, contacting and securing keynote speakers and workshop attendees. It is through the RMA that I was introduced to Sales Talent Agency and having since graduated from Ryerson, I am looking forward to bringing value to STA while also taking my career in sales to the next level!
For the love of sales!
