How did you get started in the business?
I applied for a position in shipping and receiving way back in 1997 and landed the job.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
Not having enough time in the day to get all my calls and emails finished.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
I take immense pride in helping companies sound their best on a daily basis.
Tell us a little about your family.
I have 2 extremely active children. My daughter is involved in every sport invented it seems and my son helps me stay young from chasing him around the house. They’re 12 years apart, so that keeps things interesting.
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
That’s an easy answer. The moment the doctor said it’s a girl.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
You will find me fishing somewhere with the exception of the winter months, because I’m not a big fan of ice fishing.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I can juggle more than 3 objects at a time.
What are you the most proud of?
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
“Celebrate the time you have on the planet.” From my mom, circa 1990ish.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
The Friends theme song, I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Wait?! Not everybody has a superpower? I’ll go ahead and keep mine a secret then.
What is your greatest talent that you don’t utilize in your daily work life?
I can’t play video games at work.
Which talent would you most like to have?
This is a question that I’ve never considered before. I think I would have to say I don’t focus on a talent I don’t possess.
If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be?
I’m fortunate to be exactly where I’m supposed to be.
What is your favorite movie?
Star Wars, all of them. Seriously, STAR WARS!
What is your favorite TV show?
What is your favorite local restaurant?
M’s Pub. Yummy.
If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be?
I would love to have dinner with my parents one last time. To me, they are the most famous superhero duo ever.
