Sophomore. International Business & Italian Major at John Carroll University
Sales Associate at J. Crew Mercantile and intern at Engaged Prospect
Why did you come to work with EP?
I was first introduced to EP one day at my J. Crew job when I met Hannah, an EP sales rep, trying to use her old John Carroll email address to utilize the student discount. (Editors note: Hannah's always selling). After realizing we both had not only attended the same school, but also are International Business majors, she quickly brought up internship opportunities at EP! It has been great working with the team at EP, exploring their network of clients, and having a chance to work with different marketing techniques.
What was your first sale?
In high school I worked at a clothing store and I remember helping a woman find an outfit for an upcoming wedding. Since it was last minute, she was stressed about not being able to find an outfit in time. After spending time with her, I put together an whole outfit and accessories that suited her style and the occasion.
How do you stay positive throughout the day?
Knowing that I am helping people or making their day a little better in some way has always been my biggest motivator.
How do you stay focused on achieving your goals?
I’m a very organized person and will write out color-coordinated lists and set reminders that help keep me on task and get things done.
Most unique reason you think you’re a good sales person?
I treat everyone as the individual that they are and focus on what is best for them.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I enjoy traveling and exploring new places with my friends and family. I have found that experiences mean so much more to me than material items, so I try to soak up as many new adventures that I possibly can!
