Professional Summary
I have held two jobs for most of my life and believe in loyalty. I am results oriented and don't believe that mediocrity belongs in a business. Mediocrity sometimes stems from laziness but often from a company's inability to train their staffs. Most often, I found that people who are offered training will try much harder. I am detailed , believe that communication is another key to success and live by the motto 'Failure is not an option'!

I speak 4 languages, English, Spanish, french and Portuguese fluently. I am very analytic and firmly believe in analyzing all aspects of the business. All the places I supervised had traffic counters and I was able to analyze traffic patterns, average sale, conversion rates, add ons. I believe in non negotiable standards that are clearly communicated and hold people accountable to those standards. One of my favorite sayings is the devil is in the details' It is critical to the success of a company to make sure the little things are given as much attention as the big things!

I was responsible for all aspects of the business, and built a more structured foundation.
