To whom it may concern:

  I am a graduate from San Diego State University who has recently relocated up to Northern California in 2008. Since moving here I have managed the opening of a new grocery store (Safeway in Eureka), become a member of the Chamber of Commerce in Eureka and a member and contributor to the United Way Regional Council (with Target Corp). In my previous role as Hardlines Executive with Target Corp. in Eureka I promoted internal development of two team members into Executive peers and further accelerated another two team members to department leaders.

  In the last fourteen years in retail I have grown from cart attendant, to department lead to grocery manager to assistant manager all while putting myself through college and building a strong family. Within my new role with Target Corp. as Executive Team Leader of Logistics in Santa Rosa, my role has grown into the oversight of the largest workcenter in an $80 million building with over 100 team members reporting. In my first three months in role, I developed solid routines to increase accuracy and drive sales to top ranks in the group of 57 stores.

  Most recently I was recognized as Region 200 Community Leader at Target Corp, as identified in Vibe Magazine 2013. Going forward, what I am really looking for is to strive to find a role which will develop my abilities as a leader of leaders (managing talent) and further facilitate a growth and development in my strategizing and managing execution strengths.
