Tell us about your role at TRI: 
I am an account manager for the majority of our mid-central and mid-south customers as well as supporting my salesman in those regions by managing inventory, importing material and providing logistical solutions.  I also support our export manager in the production of export documentation and negotiate our annual contracts with established steamship lines.

Tell us a little about your family:
I’m the youngest to three brothers and one sister and have a younger step-half-brother.  I’m an auntie to my 19 year old niece, 3 year old niece and 5 year old nephew and loving every minute of it having recently relocated to Boise, Idaho so I could be closer. 

About your education or experience:
I attended Portland State University and am busy working hard in the school of life. I have over 18 years in customer service and more than 15 in logistics and inventory management.  I’ve taken several professional development workshops over the years and incorporate what I’ve learned on the daily.

What sort of hobbies do you have?
Hiking, camping, finding undiscovered treasures in the outdoors or in the city.  I love to laugh, spend time with family and friends, read, bake and cook.   Catching live shows, playing a mean air guitar and dancing like no one is watching.

What is your favorite thing about working at TRI?
I feel truly blessed to be working for a company and with people who are genuinely committed to everyone being a winner.  We are the definition of an A team. 

What would you like people to know about you?
I'm all about the love!

Other than appearance, what is the first thing that people notice about you?
My ability to listen and make you feel welcome.  I’m genuinely interested in who people are and what they have to say and it comes through.

How do you typically spend your leisure time?
Living.
