Personal Summary

Started working in South Florida while attending college online. I've worked for tow yards handling titles, running their auctions and dispatching. I was eventually hired on at IAA in Ft. Pierce as a CSR/Title Clerk. After obtaining my Bachelors degree I accepted a position in the Portland, OR IAA as an Assistant Branch Manager. During my time as an ABM I traveled to different branches assisting in a variety of procedures and updates. A year into that position I was promoted to Branch Manager of the Riverside, CA branch in which I was responsible for over 10 employees, handling budgets, safety, HR and other functions. During my time in California a new site was beginning to open up in the Portland market in which I was able to transfer back to Portland as a Branch Manager and oversee their new Portland West branch. I was also still continuing my education and was able to graduate with a Masters in Business Administration. During my time working in Portland West I oversaw multiple facilities and equipment. In 2019 I was laid off and accepted a position in Evergreen Public Schools a few months later in order to provide income to my family. In July of this year I was able to begin working at J. Stout Auctions as their Operations Manager and was responsible for three different sites. Unfortunately, COVID hasn't allowed for business growth and sadly I was laid off due to financial strain.
