2009 Double Major: EIT Management and Marketing

I have been working for Frito Lay, a division of PepsiCo, since I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2009. My current title is “Sales Senior Zone Supervisor.” I work in Charlotte, NC, and help oversee a team of 300 full-time and part-time employees in Frito Lay’s “Charlotte Zone.” My main functions include partnering with Human Resources and Finance to control finances and people needs within Charlotte’s sales associates.

Previously at Frito Lay, I was also a Customer Manager Account Representative in Richmond, VA, from 2012-2016, working to build and grow sales with seven of Frito Lay’s customers (around 1,300 individual stores) and managing  sales in excess of thirty million dollars.

From 2009-2012, I was a Sales District Leader in Salem, VA; I managed a Five Million Dollar Territory and twelve frontline employees in Salem and the New River Valley (including Blacksburg!)

I am happily married to a fellow Pamplin Hokie, Skye, and have a five year old daughter, Starling. In my spare time I enjoy playing the guitar and performing at local breweries.
