* Assessed weekly reports in order to fulfill merchandising needs and properly showcase key items * Collaborated with cross functional team members to develop individual action plans for each store * Created monthly floor sets for rollouts, updated stores with merchandising documents, and styled mannequin


My greatest accomplishment was setting up an entire floor set for the store by myself. I got to work with corporate to improve the stores visuals.
