Eastern Sales Manager

Daisy was raised in the lively and diverse concrete jungles of the inner-city in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Yo! She is thankful her parents enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors. After college, she worked in the sporting goods industry as an events coordinator, worked as a non-profit executive, marketing manager for a coffee company, and worked with the Outdoor Retailer and Fly-Fishing Retailer trade shows and magazines.
