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.
