Tonja began her career path as an assistant buyer of jewelry. This is where my marketing skills took a leap in responsibility. Creating a specific assortment of jewelry, I designed a model for Urban Market Development, which provided supervision and analysis on the feasibility of companies tapping into urban markets for specific products in limited target areas. Championing the complete overhaul, this program stared with five stores and withing three months had a 25% sell thru, concluding 300 more stores were added.
The following years spearheaded a wide-ranging background in Sales, Customer Service, Event Planning, Flavors and Ingredients, Consumer goods, Travel and Education.
Teaching lead me to a new level of leadership. This challenge put me on a new journey to community, diversity, developing after school programs to grant writing. This is where Tonja really learned about quality not quantity and if you love it enough, then do it for free.
Today, Tonja is actively seeking her next challenge and is available for a wide range of opportunities and relocation.
