To Whom It May Concern:

My previous back ground is in Sales as well as Development and assistance

for implementation of sales presentations with employees. In sales I sold

both, tangible and intangible products in a business to business manner.

The location of my sales territory was Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Santa

Monica, Pacific Palisades, Westwood, and West Hollywood region. I ranked in

the top 1 to 5 % depending on the specific product sold, over 14 to 15

years. I have good people skills, am a team player, able to develop

creative approaches to sales. I actively learn and am a highly motivated,

energetic, and enthusiastic individual that strives to serve the client.

I was able to establish long term business relationships within a highly

challenging and competitive market (aka new products/services appearing on

a monthly basis which were competitive with my products/services). I am

generally, not a braggart but rather, a producer.

Simply stated, I wish to marry my people skills, education, and educational

training (neuroanatomy, neurocognitive, assessment skills, psychodiagnosis,

pharmaceutical) as well as my experience with diversity of people,

cultures, and etc with a growth oriented sales/marketing position. My

preference would be with a strong pharmaceutical company and/or medical

corporation which is centered towards helping human beings with real world

problems. My history of sales, marketing, and managerial skills, as well

as my clinical education and clinical experiences with nurse practitioners,

physicians, and psychiatrists, suggest that I would be an excellent

candidate within a medical/pharmaceutical corporation environment.

Thank you in advance for your consideration,

Karen Spoor, Ph.D.
