In 2001, Britney Spears was rocking the MTV Video Music Awards and I was starting a new job at JHE Production Group. The past decade of living within the motorsports ecosystem has been an exciting experience filled with historic moments that have provided me with lifelong friends and unforgettable memories.

Fast forward 13 years and I am preparing for my first day again. I made a difficult decision to try something new and trust that this opportunity will prove to be the right decision to grow both personally and professionally. I am incredibly proud of my many life experiences to date and hope that this new experience will continue to provide memorable moments that I will proudly share.

As the manager of business development at RockTenn In-Store Solutions, my responsibilities will include identifying potential new opportunities and working to enhance our relationships with current partners. Through research of emerging trends and state-of-the-art technologies, I will be able to help predict growth opportunities and enhance our team’s business intelligence. If RockTenn is able to provide a fraction of the successes and handful of friendships that I have enjoyed over the years I will know this was the right decision for me and my family.

As I prepare for my first day of work I will keep this quote in mind: “Never doubt yourself. Never change who you are. Don’t care what other people think, just go for it.” -Britney Spears
