Tell us about your role at TBI and how long you've been with the company.
I have been working at TBI for just over 7 years. I am currently a Cable Specialist – Post Sales with the Operations Cable team under Julia Gomulka. My day-to-day consists of obtaining provider updates to then relay to partners, as well as tracking in Netsuite.
What is your favorite TBI story?
I really enjoyed TBI's holiday party the second year I came on to the team. It was just a fun time getting to know the coworkers that I work with on a daily basis, along with meeting face-to-face for the first time with the ones that work remotely. I'm not a very outgoing person but it was genuinely a good night just talking and laughing with everyone.
Do you have any notable goals, accomplishments, or purchases that you have made outside of work while working at TBI?
I never traveled much as I child- not even within the states. I have had a goal to travel more throughout the country as well as worldwide. Since working at TBI, I have slowly started to visit more states and have visited a couple of countries. I’m not yet a world traveler but, one day soon, I hope to be.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
For my senior project in college, I built a working vibration alarm system. Also, in some of my spare time, I love to try different recipes that I find on Instagram and TikTok.
What is one thing that can instantly make your day better?
Seeing my son’s smile. Whether in person or on a picture, it instantly brightens my day. He has always been the background on my work laptop, so anytime I move a window he’s right there to make me smile.
