organizations to the next level.

I work in the Marketing Department and have since I joined the
company in 2004. My job duties are varied and that is what keeps
the job interesting. The best part of my job is speaking to all
of the people that call us seeking information about our
company. Over the last 8 years we have signed up hundreds of
clients and I think that I have spoken to every one of them. All
of the stories are different, but the needs are the same.
I have been married to my husband for 30 years and we have three
boys, ages 28, 26 and 13. The youngest one still lives at home
and I am not sure I am ready to have a teenager again.
