Prior to Sam’s Club, she held senior human resources positions at Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., and Auto Zone Stores, Inc. Earlier in her career, she was employed by the Department of Defense, where she managed the civil service employment function for Marine Corps Air Stations El Toro and Miramar in Southern California as each restructured under Base Realignment and Closure.
