Dealership General Manager
What other teams do you work with the most?
I work very closely with all departments, since I am the General Manager. The Service department and Sales department are the two that I work with the most.
What is your favorite thing about your job and why?
I love the challenge of helping our sales associates try to find the perfect camper or motor home for a customer. Once we do, then it is a challenge to see if we can finalize the sell. I am very competitive, so I to try outsell our other stores.
What made you interested in working in the outdoor recreation industry?
I have always loved sales, but had never worked in the recreation industry. I had been with Camping World for 2 weeks and I told my team that they would have me until I retired. I love this company and every position that I have had with them.
How has Camping World Holdings helped you succeed as a woman in the workplace? How is this different than other companies you have worked at?
I have always been treated me with the utmost respect and given everything that I needed to succeed. I feel like I have never been passed over for a promotion just because I was a woman. Many companies that I have worked with, don't promote women to General Managers.
What advice would you offer other women who are interested in a career at a Camping World Holdings brand?
To just do it. It is very intimidating in the beginning, because it is predominately men. The only reason I feel like it is, because most women are just afraid to give it a shot. What I have discovered is that a lot of people like working with female sales associates, because they feel like they get a better deal and they are more sincere.
