Merchant Development Manager
What makes consulting with local businesses on behalf of Groupon that much easier? When you already love and shop local.
What’s your favorite Groupon memory?
My favorite Groupon memory is when we had our Olympics-style sales competition. We did it during the actual Olympics, so it made it that much more exciting!
What was your first impression of Groupon?
“Whoa, I’m never going to figure out this huge office layout”
What’s your biggest accomplishment here (so far)?
Closing a huge merchant when I was a part of our Inbound Sales team. I closed an exotic animal park in Oklahoma City. I was able to include different options from a simple tour to being able to play with baby tigers and cubs. How cool is that? The deal has been doing amazingly well and it’s leaving so many of our customers with long-lasting memories.
Who or what inspires you?
What inspires me is to come to work every day and help local businesses. I love shopping local, so it makes it hit that much closer to home!
“The mission of helping local businesses connect with their community really makes sales at Groupon special. You can always sell random products or services, but what we’re selling here is so unique.”
What do your parents think you do?
“Oh, so you sit in an office and tell people what to do?” – my dad
If you could do another job for a day, what would you do?
I would love to do makeup for a day. I’m actually really bad at doing makeup, but I love it and would want to help make people feel beautiful!

I love to travel! My next trip is to Tokyo in October!
