Sales Support – Fort Lauderdale Office
A native Floridian, I have grown up diving and fishing the majority of my life. Some of the greatest experiences and travels that I have enjoyed throughout my life have centered on the sea. I attended college at FSU and graduated with a major in Marketing and a minor in Communications.
I married my high school sweetheart and together we have enjoyed many great travels and adventures. I have had a variety of job experiences along the way. In college, I worked for a plant company where I traveled to businesses with my “green thumb”. I have also worked at a direct mail/telemarketing company where I used analytical skills as liaison between our programmers and account managers.
My husband and I became tired of the real world and decided to try island life so we moved to Cancun, Mexico. There, with my “poquito” Spanish, I resorted to working as a mermaid (tail and all) on a sub/glass bottom boat for tourists. Once my Espanol improved, I began selling tours and eventually instructed SCUBA. I enjoyed instructing hundreds of tourists while in Cancun and even worked for a period guiding dive tours to Cozumel.
After almost 6 years in Mexico, we traveled the South Pacific including the Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. After our travels, we returned to South Florida where I worked in sales and then became an office manager for a yacht brokerage. I took some time off again to start a family. Having my son has been the greatest joy of my life. When it came time to return to the working world, the yachting industry seemed to be a natural match for me. The staff and brokers here at Atlantic Yacht and Ship are a great bunch of people and I enjoy my role in supporting the sales team.
