"If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane"-Jimmy Buffett
So, here's a little about me. I started as a bartender for an Applebee's franchise in 1995, I saw the Corporate Trainers and thought, "Hey! I could do that" I worked my way up through the trenches, eventually opening 70 Applebee's in around 25 states and 6 different countries before deciding to take a new career path. In January of this year, I got the awesome opportunity to become a Training Coordinator for Pinkberry, an up and coming frozen yogurt concept. I feel super lucky to be at the ground level of a company that is getting ready to EXPLODE throughout the nation. Contact me if you want to know anything else.
