One: How did your career path bring you to LT?

I met Rick (Culiver) a couple a years prior and learned about Lieberman and what a great company it is. When I was looking for another position, he was the first person I contacted. I found out that Lieberman was looking to add to their sales staff.

Two: What’s your favorite thing about working at LT?

I love the open door policy here. I can always come to the leadership team with a question or concern and they actually listen and care.

Three: Tell us about yourself.

I grew up in Griffin, Indiana, which is in rural Posey County.  We had very little but managed. I have four brothers, which is what made me tough and a survivor. I have been on my own since I was 18 – I am not afraid of much and will try just about anything, within reason.  This has opened a lot of doors for me in my professional career. I have sold home phones, answering machines, typewriters, word processors, faxes, cell phones, commercial voice services, IT services, and even people (staffing). I’ve worked for large companies such as AT&T, medium-sized companies like WOW, and locally-owned companies, and I have to say that the smaller companies are where I thrive.    In 2015, I will be married for 25 years and will be turning 50 all in the same year. I don’t feel old and I know I don’t act that old. I have three daughters and my hope is that they will be strong, successful adults in their personal and professional lives, and I want to be a positive example for them! I also have my dogs, Kiwi and Amadeus, who are our golden retrievers!

Four: What does life look like away from the office?

Right now my hobby is my girls. With one just graduating from college, one starting college, and one in high school I don’t have time for much else.  I do enjoy outside activities, gardening, walking, going to our local zoo and shopping.  I love, love, love buying SHOES!!!!!!!!!  I am on the board for Community Marriage Builders and SWIRCA, and I truly enjoy planning and helping with the events that support those causes.
