Connie Dority, our Sales and Corporate Support, joined the WMRA team in March 2017. With over 27 years of experience in sales and marketing between Richmond and Harrisonburg, we are thrilled to welcome her and she is excited to be joining us as well.
“I love WMRA and what they stand for,” Connie said. “They’re very community minded and I’m excited to be part of their awesome team.”
Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Connie attended J Sargent Reynolds Community College and Virginia Commonwealth University. She then moved to Santa Monica, California where she worked for a gemologist, doing lab work on diamonds and stones while gaining experience in sales.
After five years, Connie moved back to Richmond and married her husband Skip. Her career in sales and marketing took off while she was working for the Hyatt in Richmond and in 1988, Connie and her husband moved to Harrisonburg to carry out their business. She then began working at Pleasant View Homes, where she did three-fourths of their operating budget through fundraising. Most recently, she has spent the last 11 years as an account executive at WHSV.
Connie is passionate about her work in sales and marketing." I love being able to help business owners understand and achieve their goals through branding. It is just very rewarding knowing that you’re helping those people make their business successful.” Connie said.
In addition to her dedication to sales, Connie has a love for the beach and a passion for home decorating.
