1. My wife and I really enjoy traveling internationally.

I have been in the industry for 24 years.  As the Sales Manager and Tradeshow Coordinator for KEY-BAK, I have experience with many industries. Safety/Construction, Hardware, Outdoor/Sporting Goods, HR Events, Locksmiths, Access Control and more.

My days start by driving down our beautiful mountains and then typical work stuff. Making sure our tradeshow tasks are completed. I love working with my customers and thinking of new ways to challenge myself. I try to keep a full plate while having fun with whatever I do.

I love the outdoors and spending time with my loved ones.

My first tradeshow was at SAAC in Long Beach in 2001 (I think). It is still close to my heart and I want to make a difference in our area.

How long have you been in the industry?  

April 1 will be 25 years! 

 And, in what roles have you served?   

I have always been in sales

What does a typical workday look like?  I start with taking care of those must to orders, proofs and questions.  I love working on unique projects – getting creative.  And then as time allows reaching out to clients I have not heard from in a bit.  I try to drop in on clients a couple of times a month. 

What do you do in your down-time? I am very active in my church and other volunteer avenues.  I like to read, hike, and be outside.  I will golf so I can spend time with my husband.  

What attracted you to volunteering with SAAC? Joining the SAAC Board?  This industry is all about relationships.  I want to keep SAAC alive and strong to maintain and foster those relationships.  

1.  I coach Special Olympics Tennis – have been for close to 30 years.   I have traveled with athletes to Seattle WA, Charlottesville VA, and Berlin Germany

2.  I am a native CA girl but a first generation American.
