Tell me a little about your background?

I have spent the entirety of my professional career in various sales and marketing, business development, and management positions. Before, attending MSC, I worked in the following industries: medical product distribution, pharmaceuticals, retail stocks and bonds, branding, marketing, and advertising, real estate, banking, and medical device.

Why were you interested in Medical Sales? What drew you to this industry?

I enjoyed my entrepreneurial experience with a Women’s Healthcare medical products development company. Healthcare and helping people through medical devices has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy going to work every day and interacting with all the various healthcare professionals.

How long did you try to get into the industry? What was that experience like?

On two occasions, I had attempted to transition into the surgical sales industry. I estimate that I spent two unsuccessful years trying to get into surgical medical device sales. It was frustrating to say the least.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

I first learned about MSC by stumbling across Scott Binder’s contact information as a recruiter. Secondly, I attended a Veterans job fair in Dallas, Texas (Grapevine/Gaylord Hotel) in November 2012 where I met Jim Rogers.
