In Their Own Words
What are your professional drivers?
What gets me up in the morning is being able to lead my team. I have an opportunity to learn something new from my team every day. I believe that technology can improve lives and I believe in the mission at Network. My team is focused on deploying technologies that drive efficiencies for our Member Distributors, suppliers, customers and associates. At the end of the day, it feels good to make someone’s job easier so they can have more time to focus on other things.
Share a professional accomplishment of which you are particularly proud.
I am particularly proud of the transformation initiatives that I’ve led throughout my career which have helped the organization create competitive advantage and drive revenue. I am also proud of coaching and developing people on my team. It’s rewarding to see people succeed and know that you are part of their success story.
Who are you outside of work?
Outside of work I like spending time with my husband and three daughters. I have two grandchildren, with another on the way so that keeps us all busy. I am also passionate about volunteering, mentoring and helping other woman prosper.
