After graduating from VCU in 1997, I went to work for Belk of VA as an assistant buyer. I worked there for 2 years and then went to work for Schwarzschild Jewelers in Richmond as a buyer/assistant buyer. I have earned my EMT certification and worked for West End Volunteer Rescue Squad since 2001 as a volunteer EMT-B. I landed my career with McKesson Medical Surgical in 2002 as a buyer in Inventory and was promoted to sales development analyst for McKesson Private Label.
