Personal Statement

I am currently looking to relocate to Cincinnati as I am pursuing the field of pharmaceutical sales. For

years my colleagues have encouraged me to explore the opportunities in sales as I have a strong

passion for persuading and influencing lives in a powerful and impactful way. I have extensive

experience in the neonatal intensive care unit and I enjoy learning and challenging myself in new ways

on a continual basis. I am confident my years of experience in working with doctors will be beneficial to

building relationships and building a client base for sales. My outgoing and friendly personality along

with my intensive care nursing background and fundamental understanding of the human body, as well

as my understanding of the pharmacologic effects at the cellular level will help me excel in achieving

success in the field of pharmaceutical sales.

Outside my work experience, my personal life experiences have made me a strong and confident

person. Having daughters, two of which were diagnosed with serious health conditions, we have had to

overcome many medical challenges. Both girls considered medical miracles by experts around the

world and their cases written in journals and filmed in documentaries. I have had to advocate

aggressively for their care, researching and bringing treatment plans and ideas to their team of doctors.

I have gained the utmost respect from doctors, peers and co workers as I learned to gracefully deal

with difficult circumstances while proactively seeking the best quality of care for my children. Although I

may not have the typical accomplishments that companies look for when hiring sales representatives, I

have sold treatment plans to panels of doctors which ultimately saved my girls lives. I have achieved

tremendous success in my career and am confident my personality will be a good fit for the job. I know

I can utilize my nursing expertise as well as these life skills to enhance my success in the field of

pharmaceutical sales if given the chance to become a valuable asset to your company. Because of

the respect I have gained from doctors and hospital administrators, I have had the opportunity to share

our inspiring stories as keynote speaker at Cincinnati Children's Celestial Ball and Foundry Luncheons.

I have enjoyed many public relations opportunities with the hospital and built relationships with some of

Cincinnati’s most prominent people. I also currently serve on the Parent Advisory Committee at

Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
