I first started with Willis Music in January of 2004.  My first day, was the day we opened the Eastgate store, in it’s current location, which I worked for over 4 years. I  worked and managed our former Tri-County store, and was also a manager at our West Chester Willis/Moeller Music store before managing here in Kenwood.  I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management/Administration from Northern Kentucky University’s College of Business.
