What do you like most about your job?

In the Director of Sales role, I loved everything about my job. Even though I did very little "hunting" and "farming", I loved to indirectly participate in the thrill of the sale with our reps. I enjoyed walking manufacturing floors and seeing how product is made. I loved mentoring our sales team and truly enjoyed getting to know customers on a professional as well as personal level; they have all become a part of my family. In my new role as Director of Strategic Business Development, I am looking forward to new challenges. I've worked in our Military sector in the past and will be active there again, it is exciting to resharpen those skills!

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Walking, Gardening, Reading (a lot), Tennis

What are your favorite sports teams?

Virginia Tech

What is a typical day like for you?

In the Director of Sales role there was never a dull moment! I managed 100 plus emails a day, multiple phone calls, offering advice as well as direction. I worked closely with our marketing manager on different initiatives. I hired and trained new sales reps and engineers. I'm looking forward to navigating a "typical" day in my new position as Director of Strategic Business Development. I know this role will bring me many new learning opportunities.

What's a fun fact about you?

I lived in Germany for 3 years and graduated from a British "High School".
