• With Montisa since: 2015
  • Favorite band (artist) you love to hate: I've got three - U2, Coldplay, and the Dave Matthews Band
  • Industry experience: I’m relatively new to the industry, but I’ve spent a lot of time interacting with the design and customer service worlds prior to entering the furniture industry.
  • Favorite season: Fall
  • Other experience: I spent five-ish years working with a non-profit art school as an instructor while pursuing an education in art. I’ve spent the last 10 years working in different forms of customer service.
  • Favorite guitarist: Jimmy Page and Joe Walsh
  • Most valuable skills: I’m laid-back (can roll with the punches), creative, and driven. I operate well in high-stress situations and under pressure.
  • Favorite soundtrack to a movie: American Graffiti
  • How I interact with customers: I strive to be punctual, professional, and helpful with customers. I want them to feel cared for and like they are in the right hands whenever they are in need of assistance.
  • Something I’m obsessed with at work: Methods to increase the effectiveness of time-management. I’m always trying to find new ways to maximize efficiency in regard to time management and productivity. Right now, that means a fun creative planner and loads of check lists!
  • Spouse's favorite band (artist): Cody Jinks
  • Professional inspirations: My family has always driven me to pursue my professional aspirations and chase my dreams. While I admire many people who have come along in my life in the professional world, family will always be my anchor.
  • THAT song that makes you want to plunge pencils into your eyes when you hear it: "Yellow" by Coldplay
  • Biggest challenge at Montisa: Growing! There’s so many new things to learn and take on as we grow, the pace is intense and not letting it overwhelm can be tricky sometimes, but we don’t improve unless we are challenged!
  • Favorite Montisa product: Mercury - I love how it blends modern technology with a classic desk look. And of course, I’ve been a Queen fan since I was in a car seat (pretty sure I knew all of the words to "Bicycle Race" by age 6), so that’s an added bonus!
  • Favorite band or album: Blink-182 or Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (depending on my mood).
  • What I do off the clock: Ready for this? I love baking, cooking, chasing my toddler around, painting, sewing, decorating, crafts, spending time outdoors, hunting, fishing, canoeing, gardening, cleaning… a little bit of everything, and it changes from week to week. I have a huge number of hobbies that is ever-increasing (much to my poor husband’s dismay as he gets dragged into craft stores over and over again).
