My in depth knowledge stems from my vast educational background and related luxury retail, business and fashion experience. I received my B.S. degree from Hampton University in Marketing and Merchandising, earned a Master’s degree in Marketing with a concentration in International Business from Mercer University and completed my doctorate in Marketing from Argosy University. I am happy to say that I graduated with honors when I received my MBA and my doctorate. Both of which I completed while working. I say this because I know all about the art of work-life balance and focus. I also obtained my Professional Business and Coaching Certification from NC State University.
I have studied business, marketing and fashion abroad in Switzerland and France where I participated in round table discussions and meetings with Coca-Cola, Credit Suisse, UPS and the American Red Cross as well as studied in Spain, Dubai and London. My international travels and passion for Marketing, fashion and business have also taken me to Cuba, Rome, Venice, Florence, Paris, and Canada. I have also resided in Milan Italy, which allowed me to gain a broader understanding of business, culture, and marketing in luxury goods and retail.
