My Passion: I love meeting new people and I’m an intensely curious person, which is why I love taking on new and challenging experiences. For years, I thought about crossing over from manufacturing to the rep side of the industry, and Allied Group Sales gave me the opportunity to do that. I’m excited for the opportunity to be part of such a well-respected and talented agency.
My Role: In my role as Contractor Sales, I develop and maintain strong relationships with contractors by collaborating with them to ensure they get the best products for the job, working with them to troubleshoot issues, and by anticipating unmet needs and offering innovative solutions.
Career Background: After 9 years in commercial printing, I got into the electrical industry in 2000 with a small electrical safety products manufacturer. My duties encompassed everything from marketing, inventory control and product development to sourcing & sales. After the company was acquired in 2017, I moved into a product manager role for lighting and spent a year handling national sales & product training for the lighting division. I then transitioned to Inside Sales and Customer Support for the Legrand team at AGS, where I developed an in-depth understanding of product features, became proficient in manufacturer’s systems, and built strong working relationships with contractors. I have consistently pursued ongoing education and professional development opportunities to deepen my industry knowledge. I’ve completed courses through NEMRA University, participated in Legrand webinars, and I’m currently enrolled in the EPEC Bronze program.
Personal Side: I was born in Michigan and grew up in Brooklyn NY. I moved to Las Vegas in 1994 and relocated to Chandler early in 2023. I have a beautiful daughter & three wonderful bonus children. In my free time, I enjoy a variety of activities, including sports, cooking, playing guitar, and exploring new restaurants with my family. I also really enjoy gardening and taking on DIY projects. When I’m not busy with those, you can often find me hiking or exploring the outdoors. I also love spending time at the beach with my family; we try to make the trip at least once a year!
