As the Exhibit & Customer Service Manager, BJ comes with a strong backroad in both areas. Her career began as a Convention & Exhibit Manager for both Sandoz Pharmaceuticals & Bristol-Myers Squibb in New Jersey. She managed exhibits for 5 therapeutic areas at approximately 25 conventions annually.
BJ’s detail management of $1-2 mil dollar annual budget was critical to the success of the convention program. She worked closely with marketing, sales, exhibit houses and most importantly Medical Associations to forge strong alliances.
Later, BJ followed her passion and put her past experience in sales & marketing to work as an entrepreneur, and opened a cooking studio/retail store in Newtown, PA. After selling her business to a prominent Bucks County, PA chef, she accepted a position at Doylestown Hospital’s public relations & development department overseeing fundraising events for capital funding.
