What do you enjoy most about working with our clients?
I love getting to know their businesses, challenges, and weaknesses. Each one is different, has different challenges, and all benefit from being held accountable for their actions or inactions. I love listening to their goals and helping them achieve them through weekly calls.
How long have you been in the FEC industry and in what roles?
I have been working with FECs for about ten years. I worked as a Community Event planner and was a Director of Marketing for many years for a new concept start up. It was great to not only grow with a company but see firsthand development of a brand from concept to franchise.
What is the most significant thing you have learned working in the FEC industry?
I think learning to value people. Everyone comes to the table with an eagerness to learn and have fun. It's a lot of work, but ultimately you are a hospitality business. We learn to value people. Each has to learn that you are selling an experience and that experience is the product. We are only as good as our guest’s experiences.
Which of our core values resonates with you the most?
Being in service to one another. That is so important to me and the way I like to live my life. I think we are all here to be valuable to one another, to be accountable, and to serve others. In both my personal and professional life, I love the daily opportunity to live that core value.
What store would you like to max out your credit card in and why?
Wow! Wouldn't be a store, it would be a travel card. Love visiting new places and spending time exploring. Haven't done too much of it lately because I have a kid in school, but I am always up for traveling. Trying not to concern myself too much with material things - more experiences, less stuff!
What motivates you to succeed?
First, my family. Failure is not an option when you care about your family. Secondly, God. I have great faith that God places me at the right place at the right time to service others. My abilities and successes all come from this.
