Skills Summary

Business Management

• As Housing Site Operations and Leasing Manager, I currently oversee marketing, administration, maintenance, new leasing, as well as vendor selection for 50-unit Affordable Senior Housing Complex that meets Federal HUD and PA State PHFA guidelines.

•. Earlier, while owning and operating The Coffee Co. -- a 75-person capacity gourmet café and coffee bean retailer with 12-person staff in Lancaster, Pa. -- I grew annual sales from $250,000 to $485,000 over eight years before selling this business.

•. There, I performed staffing, payroll, training, buying, marketing, and promotion roles – managing sales, growing our client base, orchestrating promos, booking space, etc.

•. Earlier, as NYC Corporate PR Account Specialist, I sold new business; developed, printed, and managed distribution of collateral materials; groomed story ideas and broker research contacts; wrote and publicized client talks, generated new business, ran prospect logs and mailing lists, etc.

•. My marketing responsibilities included charting and energizing sales, managing staff efforts, and answering client promotional needs.

• I sold heavily – while also establishing business priorities and meeting operational budgets, and developed and co-wrote training manuals, and created other technical materials for business growth.

Personnel Management and Classroom Teaching

• In general, I have hired staff, assigned workloads, overseen production schedules, conducted payroll and bookkeeping operations, and also arranged and delivered staff training.

•. Further, for almost ten years I taught Social Studies and English Literature to upper school students in challenging urban districts – preparing lessons, tests, curricula and student portfolios.

• For the last three years as my final teaching role, I served as Technology Literacy Coach and Staff Developer at JPMcCaskey High School meeting PA State and Federal Educational goals – using Univ. Pennsylvania’s “Collins Writing Model” for school improvement.

• In these roles, I communicated specific staff development and technical development protocols to employees and customers, students and government bureaucrats, and even targeted journalists in a clear, persuasive, and unmistakable manner to reach specific results.

Ad/Marketing, Written Communications, Sales

• I wrote press releases, brochure copy, speeches, by-lined articles and insured their placement.

• I designed and executed B-to-B sales, marketing, collateral materials execution and production.

• I also identified, promoted and reached specific outcomes via data analysis, action planning, and direct sales execution – all while tracking billable hours for clients.
