Tell me a little about your background?

I received a Biomedical Science degree from Troy University so I have an extensive background in biology. Through my studies, I became fascinated with the human body. I was introduced to sales at a young age through my father being a salesman for a trucking company. Watching as he cultivated relationships with his customers and being well-respected among them has always intrigued me. I became interested in this industry because it allows me to utilize my biology background as well as become a sales professional like my father.
