Senior Director, Merchandise Control
I started at Ross right out of college with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. Ross had a wonderful training program that helped me transition into my first role. My progress would not have been as successful without managers who make sure I am learning and developing to my fullest potential. I have had a great experience at Ross and see myself continuing to grow within the company.

As a Buyer, my primary focus is to find product with those great values that ensure our customer will come back, which is so important. I was brought into the company as an Assistant Buyer and groomed to become a Senior Assistant Buyer within nine months. Eventually, I was able to further develop my skills, enabling me to take over an entire department as a Buyer.
