Katie Schulist Resume

I am a dedicated and driven professional with advanced experience within Ecommerce Management, Project Management, Corporate Training, Implementation, Business Development, and Process Improvement. Throughout my career, I have gained exceptional experience within my field of work and have developed a detailed understanding of analyzing systems and implementing strategic improvement strategies, overseeing Ecommerce growth and success, and managing D2C/ B2C channel development. My work experience has not only enabled me to gain a proven track record in success, but has also held me accountable for KPI management, large implementation projects, warehouse and inventory control, SCRUM development and much more. Most recently, I was headhunted to work at Gerber Childrenswear responsible for developing and expanding the existing Ecommerce brand to include a Direct to Consumer/ Business to Consumer revenue stream. Prior to this, I gained experience working as a Training and Implementation Specialist at ChannelAdvisor, and as a Productivity Analyst working within Cisco Systems. At this stage of my career, I am now seeking new opportunities which will enable me to utilize my existing skillsets whilst developing myself further through new challenges.
