I worked in the shoe department at Sears.

So many people! My husband, my parents, my sister, everyone around me has different gifts, and there’s always an opportunity to learn from those around you. It’s something that I am always trying to remind myself, I’m not perfect!
Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I’m really proud of the life that my husband and I have built together.
Q: What is the best advice you ever received? What is the worst advice you ever received?
Best advice – never burn bridges, because you don’t know where you’re next opportunity will come from.
Worst advice – the mindset that in order to succeed I had to beat someone out. There’s always enough room for everyone to succeed.
Q: What brought you to WT?
An internship. I couldn’t find a job out of college, and I took an internship here in marketing. I remember the night that I was given the internship. I held it together until I got to the stop sign at the corner of East Parkway and Pratt and called Justin sobbing! I was so excited because this was the opportunity that I had been looking for. All of the hard work that went into getting my degree, working while going to school, and they daydreaming of what I wanted to be when I grew up hit me like a ton of bricks. I was finally on the right path. I wanted to be able to grow and excel in a career and be able to put my business degree to use close to home.
Q: What motivates you?
What I call the 66 Unit, Justin, our dogs, our home, gardens, chickens. Our house number is 66, hence the 66 unit. It’s my “Why.”
