A "corporate athlete."

Amy Mirialakis has been an athlete throughout her entire life, playing two collegiate sports and participating in numerous triathlons and running events. She started off in the pharmaceutical industry and later switched to natural products, working with a number of top brands like Gaia Herbs, Natural Vitality and Rainbow Light. Today Mirialakis is national sales manager at Nordic Naturals.

Nordic Naturals is invested in supporting the career development of women, with a workforce of 61% female.

“I think it's amazing to find a company that really values and empowers women. They also have been incredibly supportive in my journey as I started as a regional manager and then was promoted to a national manager. So they are definitely looking at career paths for women and even putting more empowerment into developing career paths so that we'll have even more women in higher level positions at Nordic,” said Mirialakis. “I have the opportunity to hire women and also maybe even more importantly, be a mentor to the talent that we do have. And that's really near and dear to me because I would love to help others on their professional journey and help them get to their career goals.”

As a lifelong athlete, Mirialakis said she is able to utilize many of the skills she picked up in sports and apply them to her career.

“Coaching actually is one thing just because I've been coached for so long in my athletic career that it is very fulfilling to be able to give back to the team that I manage and to other employees by just helping them and learning about what motivates them and what their goals are and how I can help them get there and achieve. That's where amazing things happen and it makes you feel fantastic to see somebody thriving and growing.”
