I grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma called Berryhill. I learned a lot growing up in that small little town. My father owned a couple of appliance stores in Tulsa, and it’s there that he taught me what hard work is. He was more than qualified as well, being that he grew up on a farm, went through the military, and then opened his own company at 22 years old. Between fixing, hauling, and washing a variety of heavy steel machines in the suffocating Oklahoma summer makes everything else seem easy.
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Advertising, I decided that I wanted to move to the Big Apple. I enjoyed my time there making several good friends, exploring a city that mine as well have been a different world, and growing so much professionally. A relationship and family eventually called me closer to home, so I decided to move back and take a position as a brand management intern at The Richards Group.
I chose brand management because it holds so many of my interests and passions. I’m an extrovert through and through. Creating and growing relationships is one of my favorite things to do, and I genuinely believe that anyone can learn at least a few things from any other individual.
I also enjoy project management. There is something so satisfying in helping to guide a project from beginning to end. The ups and downs, obstacles, and timelines are a great test of patience and ingenuity.
Finally, I like math. I don’t mean Calculus and Algebra, as I could very well be allergic to them, but the kind of math Excel is made for. The statistics, multiplication, spreadsheets are things I very much enjoy. It’s why I’m drawn to the revenue management part of the position.
