What do you love about your job?
I've been a marketer for 25+ years. I can't imagine doing anything else. When I first decided to get my MBA in marketing and strategic management, it was my manager at the time that was a great influence. I was pursuing a teaching degree and he said to me that marketing is a way of educating a more diverse and broad audience. I love that my marketing efforts have an impact that reaches beyond my home office.
What do you like about working with TBI?
TBI is responsive to its customers and vendors with equal passion. Working with TBI gives me confidence that we both want success for our customers and one another. When we work towards achievable goals, anything is possible.
Happiness is right around the corner, just get out of your own way and there it is...
What is a key tidbit you give to others?
I've been working from a home office for 10 years with PanTerra. My advice to anyone considering an at-home office or business opportunity would be to make sure you have the right tools for success. PanTerra's Streams is a good start.
Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
My favorite vacation destination is wherever family is. And, luckily, our family likes to vacation together. So, every destination is a favorite.
Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?
I've been very lucky in my life. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, I went back to school while my kids were in school, I traveled for work all over the world and I've been married for 43 years. When I was a youngster, I thought about a singing career. I get to fulfill that dream and am honored every time I am asked to sing the Star-Spangled Banner for a veteran's event in our community.
