If I could make a living fishing, I would. Aside from that, I love marketing - the how and why of business has always intrigued me. I enjoy coming up with creative strategies and solutions and watching them implemented. I get anxious because I'm always looking for the results and impatient for them. As an agency, you're always on your toes because you have to constantly prove yourself to your clients. It's what keeps me going - the drive to always do better.
I have lived in Asheville, NC for over 20 years, making my way here by way of several states and two countries. Originally born in Seoul Korea, I consider myself a Southerner through and through. It's what I cook and eat. I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Montreat College and worked as an administrator in legal and accounting, gaining operations, finance and management experience. The best education I have earned is life education and experience working in various business settings, from multiple locations and budgets up to $5 million.
