I’m an entrepreneur, strategist and speaker with 20 years’ experience in developing and launching new products from consumer products to telecommunications and Internet based companies.
My first book is finished and I’m so excited! Being dyslexic, writing a book has been a goal since junior high.
“You Posted What! How to Help Your Teen Use Social Media to Gain Advantage for College and Future Employment” will be published in May 2014.
As Founder and Owner Dillon 5™ , I work with a wide range of businesses from funded startups, small businesses and entrepreneurial teams within large companies.
I’ve been an integral team member for five startup businesses helping the founders launch both the company and its products in the marketplace. I worked to secure funding, developed strategies that gained market traction and hire talented team members.
My knowledge and expertise has been invaluable during transitional growth phases; especially startups moving to the next level.
From 2009 – 2011, I served as Director of Marketing and Consumer Relations for Meals to Live a funded startup while she concurrently managed Dillon 5′s clients.
As a member of Meals to Live executive team and worked closely with the Founder to develop and launch the brand in the market.
I also served as Marketing Manager for Diabetes Friendly Foundation (“DFF”), a nonprofit organization founded by Meals to Live. Working with the founder, I helped develop Quick Sticks which was spun off as a separate company from DFF and merged with Meals to Live under the name Quick Sticks.
“Launching a new company is one of the greatest challenges while the task can be daunting it also provides the team with an enormous amount of freedom.
I embraced the opportunity to create Meals to Live Marketing, Public Relations and Consumer Relations group. We achieve our goal of total engagement with consumers at all levels and I personally answered every email we received from the public.”
I created marketing and consumer programs, developed the company’s sales training program, hired marketing interns and sales personnel, managed all corporate marketing, consumer relations and public relations initiatives.
Prior to Dillon 5, I worked as a regulatory specialist for FINRA and received multiple promotions and two “Above and Beyond Award”. The first award was for developing innovative web-based auditing program that converted all manual auditing functions to the new system.
I received the second “Above and Beyond Award” for outstanding work performance on a federal embezzlement case and was promoted to a senior level position for investigative work analyzing variable annuity sales practices at leading Wall Street firms.
Before FINRA, I worked for Bustin & Co., a boutique business strategy firm launching new products for Fortune 500 companies. She was responsible for “making things happen” and creating workable solutions in sometimes chaotic situations. I created a breakthrough business development concept for Nextel and Bustin & Co. which became the benchmark for Nextel in all markets.
Working for Bustin & Co. was the best career training ever for combining creativity and strategic thinking. I started my career in consumer product sales and transferred to product development after completing my MBA.
I hold an MBA from Southern Methodist University and a Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M University.
