Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. July of 2008
Q. What’s your favorite part of your job?
A. Resolving issues is, by far, my favorite part of the job. It is very satisfying to be able to report back to our customers that an issue has been resolved and we’re moving forward!
Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. My husband, Trent, and I have three children. Trent teaches fourth grade and coaches high school soccer. It’s hard to believe our oldest, Baker (14), was in preschool when I started at MACC and will now be a freshman this coming fall. He is a part of many sports teams, including cross-country, basketball, soccer, and track. He also plays trumpet in the school band and manages to practice when he’s not busy with sports or Fortnite. Brooklyn (11) is also very sports-oriented. She plays volleyball, basketball, soccer, and softball. She started taking piano lessons last year and loves it! Baylor (6) is also involved in sports, including soccer, softball, and dance, and is very “girly.” If you need a mani/pedi, and don’t mind wild colors, she’s your girl!
Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. At this phase of life there’s not much free time available, but I love to read at night to wind down.
Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. Latvia. I would love to meet some of my maternal relatives there.
Q. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
A. Smile, breathe, and only take on what you can handle.
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. Worse things have happened to better people.
Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
