I grew up in St. Louis and attended Vianney High School. After graduating from Missouri State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing, I came back to St. Louis to contribute to the expansion of our family business. My early years at Royal were spent learning the business from the ground up starting in the warehouse. By working in all departments, I gained valuable knowledge and experience allowing me to express to our customers what separates us from the competition and grow my direct sales. While continuing to maintain my direct accounts, I was tasked with developing and establishing a distribution branch in Mid Missouri. As General Manager of our Mid Missouri Branch, I have successfully established the fastest-growing part of our business within 5 years. Today my time is spent collaborating with our team to make sure our customers have the best solutions when they need them to clean and make their facilities safe.
