In the end, all business operations can be reduced to three words:
people, product, and profits. Lee Iacocca
I am currently the owner/consultant of DJ Consulting. I have been using my extensive retail experience to help manufacturers and retailers get the best program in stores.
In the past 25 years I have been involved in virtually all aspect of the retail world. I have been in sales, an assistant store manager, buyer and merchant in specialty retail, a traditional department store and Home Improvement Retail. I have represented companies in product categories from hardware to lawn & garden to craft & hobby. My responsibilities have included P&L, budgeting, advertising, product marketing, catalog pages, new product development and more.
I have studied consumer science for most of my career. I am fascinated with what makes a customer think, what makes them buy or not buy. I have a BS degree in Clothing, Textiles and Merchandising from Florida State University - College of Human Sciences. I boosted my analytical skills at Babcock Graduate School of Management at Wake Forest University. I plan to continue my education with a certificate program in Web Design and Publishing at UNCC this fall.
Today I continue my love of textiles with weaving and other fiber arts. I have been a member of the Southeast Fiber Forum for 6 years. I volunteer to teach weaving and other crafts to kids whenever possible.
