What attracted you to work at Revamp?
What really attracted me to work at ReVamp Wholesale were the positive things my colleagues had to say about the company. Fast growing company, many opportunities, and a stress free work environment were just few of the great things they had to say about ReVamp. Pretty much everything I heard was true! This year ReVamp was placed in INC’s 5000, 50th fastest growing company in the nation, I was promoted to Sales Account Manager within 9 months, and this is the first job I’ve ever had where I don’t dread going to work every morning.
Name a time or experience that helped or motivated you to be where you are today.
Living in Mexico for 5 months was definitely a motivational experience to help me get to where I am today. In Mexico everyone is not privileged with everyday luxuries, which many of us take for granted. Not being able to shower, small food portions, poverty, and violence are some of the things I dealt with while living in Mexico. I went to Mexico to try out for a 3rd division professional soccer team with another ReVamp colleague. We made the team but after the 5th month we decided to come back and pursue a higher education. The overall experienced gave me a small glimpse of what my parents went through for my brothers and I to live a better life.
Going to school and work full time can be stressful, how do you manage your time and stay focused?
Going to school and work full time can definitely be stressful. One way I relive stress is by doing the one thing I love to do the most and that’s soccer. Soccer has been a huge influence in my life and has affected me in many ways. All my problems go away the moment I lace up my boots and step onto the pitch. After a bad day or rough week I go practice or play a game and realize afterword’s that things aren’t so bad. My family is what keeps me focused on the prize at hand. Being the first person out of my entire family to graduate with a bachelor’s degree keeps my mind where it needs to be. Also being a role model for my little nieces, nephews and cousins definitely keeps me focused and helps me accomplish my goals in life!
What do you like most being part of the ReVamp team?
The thing I love the most about being part of the ReVamp team are the people I have the privilege to work with. Great amazing people who are natural born leaders who I learn from everyday. Because Revamp has this friendly environment it creates a stress free work area. It definitely does not feel like a drag to wake up to go to work everyday!
Do you have a ritual or routine to start of your workday?
When I can, I try to start off my workday with a nice morning jog or I hit the gym to get the blood flowing. This gets my mind focus to accomplish my goals or tasks for the day. After a delicious bowl of oatmeal I’m ready to start my day!
