My Passion: It may sound funny but I am very passionate about lighting in general. I cannot go out to a restaurant, go shopping or visit any retail establishment without looking up. I am aggressive and will continually try to find for my clients the best deals that meet their schedules and needs. I truly care about each of my customers and their respective success. If they are successful because of my help, this in my eyes makes me successful.
My Role: My official title is “Contractor Sales”. However, I consider my role to be more “Customer Assistance and Relations”. As stated previously, my customer’s success equates to my success. It gives me a great sense of fulfillment to know that I have helped someone with a complete lighting and controls package that met the project specifications; met (or came in less than) my client’s budget; and was delivered to the project on schedule.
Career Background: I have spent over 30 years in the lighting industry working with the design and construction communities. I began my career with the Norman Brim Company and have worked with other manufacturer’s representatives here in Arizona. I am very familiar with the Arizona/Southwest marketplace and am well-versed on the many new lighting technologies and controls available today.
Personal Side: I have an amazing adult daughter, Hannah, that means the world to me. We have been through much together over the years and have learned from each other, helped each other, and have found strength from each other along the way. I also have a deep love and empathy for all living things. Along this line I have fostered many animals (cats, dogs, and even a rabbit). It’s not uncommon that I get calls from those in the industry asking what do I do, when coming across an animal that needs help. I am also involved with the state’s “TNR” program. I recently got married in 2020, the “Covid” year, to a very amazing man. We’re pretty certain we had the best wedding in all of 2020. We both look forward to what the future holds for us.
