Best Career Blunder

Being placed in a management position during a retail internship program where I had to oversee employees who were older and had more work experience than me.

Biggest Challenge

Learning how to gain the respect of the associates while also maintaining a productive work environment in a department of strong, often conflicting, personalities.

Lessons Learned

Listening is incredibly important to effective leadership, people want their input and concerns to be heard!
