Home-Tech is a very woman-friendly organization, don’t you agree?
Yes! I don’t think there are many companies locally that have as many female managers as Home-Tech. Home-Tech watches newer people, and we recognize talent. We nurture them, and allow them to grow.
What is your favorite saying?
My all time favorite quote is, “Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.” I read it in a poetry book in high school.
What is your organization style?
I am a mental organizer. I have my whole day planned out before I ever get to the office. However, my day gets interrupted all day long. So my day doesn’t always go as planned.

Don’t oversell your point. Make your point and let it go.
What are your interests outside the walls of Home-Tech?
My 5 beautiful grandchildren. I spend most of my free time with them.
