Tell me a little about your background?

I’m the first generation of my family born in the USA. Grew up in Minnesota and graduated from St Cloud State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Never played sports growing up but I’ve been employed since the age of 13. Ever since college I’ve been managing my own private bartending service and trying to gain as much professional sales experience as possible

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

I love the philosophy behind sales. I want to sell something that can truly help change lives for the better.

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

I tried since graduating in the summer of 2012, and it has been miserable, until MSC. There have been lots of roadblocks, rejections and frustrating moments.

Through networking with people already in the industry.

Did you have any fears about attending the School? What were they?
