What do you love about your job?
What I love about my job is what I get to do every day, where I get to work every day, and who I get to work every day - it couldn’t be more sympactico! With marketing I get to see the value and results of the work I do. I also get to do the fun part including traveling, social media, learning new creative and technical trends in the industry (which happen very often!), and more! All while creating a space to help the company and sales team succeed.
What do you like about working with TBI?
The team at TBI is great to work with and so innovative with their business strategy. Your videos are the best!!! Their marketing team truly positions success for their partners and suppliers together. The way their team supports their partners only results in wins. It’s so important to have a relationship and connection with a team who not only creates and helps drive a great professional relationship, but also takes the time and makes it personal too. That is the gold standard and TBI does just that!

I just love traveling and seeing the world. I really want to make sure I see as much as I can – fill up my map, spend some good time in Italy especially!
