Franklin Experience: I began my journey at Franklin University in 2008 as a part time student. I started pursuing my business undergraduate degree but, I decided to move more toward marketing.

I use LinkedIn for career purposes and staying connected to coworkers, colleges, leaders and business of interest and the job market.
Internal Factors: are the strengths that have been favorable to my internal growth: Such as: The Women’s Initiative Network: It is an organization where women off all nationalities come together to empower, inspire, impact and invest in the needs of other women. I am also a part of the African American Network which, is a group that diversifies opportunities for African Americans but, it creates a network that enhances a culture of people that want to learn about the culture and embrace it. I have always been afraid to speak in person. I decided to sign up for toastmaster to help enhance my public speaking. I am also a part of APAN (Asian Pacific American Networks) which, is also a diverse group that Asians relate to the American culture. It allows others to network and engage from a career perspective. I recently began pursuing opportunities in the National Black MBA Association. It is a GREAT opportunity to support and be a part of a great organization as it pertained to those people who embrace higher education.

We are allotted 2 hours to go to a school where (inner city) to talk with, tutor and help children that are having trouble in school.
Customer service is a day to day driver for me. It is very important to drive your business based off service. I provide service through developing strategic strategies to meet provide excellent service to customers as it pertains to the end to end process. Customer to me is my commitment, dedication and quality as it pertains to Service Levels, Forecast, and Demand. Customer Service is the number n focus to customer.

The Marketing Mix is combined factors that can be measured by a business to encourage customers to buy its products. Price, Product, place, Promotion, and Prospects.
Once I obtain my graduate degree, I want the employers to view me as: One who stands out from other potential candidates.

A graduate level from a recommendable college such as Franklin University. Someone that they believe in and understands that they are talented.
