A large part of my job is making sure that all employees are performing to company standards which is reflected mainly on meeting a credit card application goal and a daily sales goal.

My specialty at Penny’s was merchandising and visual coordination.

I processed and merchandised shipment from trucks and was responsible for the accuracy of placement with collections on the sales floor.

As a professional photographer I sold photo packages in Skagit Valley Hospital to moms and dads with newborn babies. I offered professional photo service to new parents in the maternity ward. I started out as a self-taught photographer to enrich my creativity and experience.
