Yearbook Sales Representative – San Diego, California
As a sales rep for Walsworth in San Diego, I help schools capture memories and make yearbook adviser and student’s lives easier. I also teach photography, layout, design, marketing and writing to the best students in the school. I do my dream job.
I have been a yearbook rep since 2005 and have been a rep for Walsworth since June 2014.
I have been making yearbooks since the 7th grade! I was recruited by the previous rep in my area and changed companies because of the strong family feel Walsworth has. I feel like Walsworth really cares for its people.
What I love most about my position is that I get to make people’s lives easier/better every day! When my advisers call saying something is wrong or making them upset, I love that I can find a solution and make them feel better in just one call or visit.
If I had a personalized coffee mug at work, it would say “Think Outside the Pica.” There is always a way to figure out a solution 🙂
What I love most about my job is knowing that I can make a difference and that I get to work with friends every day.
A fun fact about me is I used to be a backup dancer for a pop singer in Canada.
I have been married to Tino for 14 years this August. We have an 8-year-old son Luca and a 5-year-old daughter Isabella. We also have a 1-year-old puppy named Jasper. He is a spaniel/dachshund mix.
When I’m not at work, I love photography and dancing. Honestly, with kids and work I don’t get to do much else right now.
When we have time, my son and I raise money for Interfaith Community Center in different ways. For Thanksgiving each year, we drive around and deliver meals to homeless people with my family.
I am a yearbook lifer! I have been making yearbooks for over 30 years! I don’t plan to stop. Walsworth has paid me to do what I love and I have helped create over 500 yearbooks! Just think of how many more memories I will help people have forever!
Honestly, I love our annual International Sales Meeting (ISM). I have made really good friends that I believe I will have for life. I love catching up with them, hearing about their families and celebrating their wins.
I also love how Walsworth management really listens and tries to make the changes requested by employees. I remember being pulled aside after my first meeting and being asked how I felt about how ISM was run. I had only been working for Walsworth for 5 days. I gave my honest feedback about the things I liked and some changes that I thought would help. I was shocked when the changes I suggested were actually made for the following ISM. Walsworth management makes me feel heard and appreciated.
