June 2012 DSR of the Month, Pam Story, J. Kings

Pam Story of Huntington, NY has been in the food business since she was 15 years old.  Working as a prep cook and a grill and sauté cook, she has learned many tricks of the trade.   She then moved onto owning a small produce and specialty bread company.   Through that experience, she became the summer chef for Marvin Hamlish in Westhampton, NY.  Pam then worked as the Food Service Director at a healthcare/rehab center when her sales rep from J. Kings told her that she thought Pam would be good at selling food. 

Now, after six years of being a DSR, she is selling $18 million per year with 65 accounts.  I guess her rep was right!
