What is your current role?
Service Sales Representative

Why did you decide to be on the WICS advisory council?
Women are greatly underrepresented in the HVAC industry. I feel as though the more women we can attract to this industry, in the correct roles, the better it will be for everyone.

What is the biggest change you would like to see come out of the WICS effort/initiative?
I would like to see more women in upper management roles at Limbach/Harper.

What would you tell someone if they were interested in supporting this effort? How can they help?
Do it! I think a great first step would be offering to be a mentor in our mentor/mentee program.

What's your favorite part of your job?
I love building relationships with customers.

What advice would you give someone starting out in this industry?
It might seem like a foreign language at first, but a few months in everything will click.

What is the biggest change you have seen in the construction industry since you started?
There is a big push to be energy conscious and energy efficiencies.

Who inspires you and why?
My Dad inspires me because he started out as a sales professional himself, but in the paint industry. He has worked hard and done things the right way throughout the years. He is now a sales manager in a different industry. His hard work and dedication, while still keeping his family first, is something I aspire to do in my own career.

What’s the best career advice you ever received?
You can't teach hard work.

What (work related thing) keeps you up at night?
I worry about a major piece of equipment going down at a critical site.

What would surprise us about you?
Even though I always talk about my daughter, our first "baby" was our bichon poo Archie.
