Andrea's Profile

Experience Summary

I have a B. A. degree in Behavioral Psychology from Drake University in Des Moines Iowa. People are drawn to me because of my friendliness and outgoing personality. I have worked in the promotion industry for many years. Most recently I have focused on Wines and Spirits promotion, and products that are most often found in grocery chains and specialty stores. I am successful at reaching goals set for my promotions because I continually look to engage potential customers by reaching out to them, and listening to what they are / or may be interested in and how my product might fit that need... I have a great deal of experience with community projects, having experience in event planning, fund raising, festival organization, volunteer coordinating, as well as group management. My career has centered around people. I was the owner/ operator of a very successful home daycare for over 20 years while raising my children. Currently I work in a highly respected child care center in Wilmette Il. I also have worked a great deal with the elderly, having been an activity director in a nursing home and an adult daycare center. I also worked as consultant for senior citizen clubs both in the community and in senior living Buildings. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
