My first experience in sales was at the age of 7, working summers in the family coffee shop. I would stand behind the cash and up-sell pastries to clients with my mom’s encouragement. Watching my parents grow their business through hard-work, resilience and a true entrepreneurial passion inspired me to work relentlessly towards my own goals. 

While completing my degree in International Development, Economics and Communications at McGill University, I went abroad on a three month internship in Madrid working in the non-profit sector. There I had the opportunity to work on a project focusing on youth unemployment in Spain with an amazing team of people, as well as teach local volunteers a new language. This experience led me to build my cultural knowledge, international perspective and discover my passion for people. I loved building relationships, solving problems and finding ways to help.

Following Graduation I began working at one of the Big Five Canadian financial institutions. It was here that I got my first real taste of quota based sales. I made my first calls, built meaningful client relationships and experienced the satisfaction of hitting my targets. Once I realized that finance wasn’t the field for me I reached out to Sales Talent Agency in search of the right opportunity to bring together my skills and passions, that opportunity ended being with the agency itself.

Making the move from Montreal to Toronto, I look forward to bringing my creativity, love for people and passion for sales as an Account Manager at STA.

For the love of sales!
