account manager, Vancouver
I started working at a Financial Institution when I was 19 years old as a Financial Service Representative. I was responsible for basic transactions and spotting opportunities that would benefit the member. I enjoyed building relationships with the members, and in turn building their trust. I continued to build on my career within the Credit Union, working in numerous different sales roles, the most recent being as a Lending Specialist. It was while working in the Financial Industry that confirmed I had a passion for sales and helping other people.
While working at the Credit Union, I attended Simon Fraser University, majoring in Business. I changed my concentration a few times from Finance to Accounting and finally deciding on Human Resources. I realized that although, I was passionate about sales and working with clients, a career in Human Resources would allow me to really capitalize on helping others. Recognizing that I needed to make an adjustment in my career path due to the change in my concentration, I began cross training as a Talent Acquisition Specialist, assisting with the recruitment process for customer facing sales positions. I managed a career fair recruitment panel, assisted with resume screening, conducted phone and in person interviews, and assisted with offer extensions. With my passion for helping other people, along with a love of sales, recruitment seemed like the perfect fit!
I am extremely competitive in both my personal and professional life (growing up as the middle child with two sisters didn’t help), and was involved in a lot of competitive sports growing up. I am still passionate about running, and plan on completing my second half marathon in the near future.
I am excited to be a part of Sales Talent Agency and work alongside such a great group of motivated individuals. I am looking forward to a long successful career with the team!
For the love of sales!
