I have been in the automotive industry since 2000. Became a salesman and ended-up working at several different dealerships across Northern Illinois. Sold for Chevy, Isuzu, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Honda, Lincoln, Mercury, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW. I managed a “Buy-Here Pay-Here” dealership assisting secondary customers. I have worked at many new-car dealers assisting primary customers, and worked at a high-end luxury dealer assisting important individuals within the surrounding community. The most rewarding part of my journey: is knowing that I have worked for all types of dealerships, all types of cliental, and held many different positions within each dealership; most importantly, I took everything I learned in the automotive industry and applied it to my academic career, which I completed at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.
