What I Enjoy Most About My Job

Leading the AGA team and promoting a positive office and association culture. Our team is passionate, connected, and strive to give AGA members the best marketing support and technical expertise possible. The Board of Directors has set a great example of how a cohesive group can accomplish big things, and I enjoy learning from and serving the members and industry for them.

My Most Significant Contribution to Our Members/Industry

Consistency in the marketing of our industry and with the marketing program at the AGA. Prior to my tenure, there was not a lot of continuity in the marketing department, and I believe having a consistent voice has enabled the AGA and our industry to make significant strides in both existing and emerging markets as well as grow our marketing strategy into a more cohesive and sophisticated approach.

What I Consider the Most Interesting/Impactful Thing about HDG

Galvanizing is literally a part of your everyday life, and without it our lives would be much more difficult. Its amazing to me the average person doesn't know this or even what galvanizing is! This is a big part of why I enjoy educating others because I want our product and industry to be recognized for the impact it truly has on the world.

Other Interesting Things that Shape My Life

Outside of work, I enjoy exploring new places/things and spending time with friends and family while watching my kids grow up. Those who know me best would tell you I am a natural born leader (some might say bossy), foodie/wino, die-hard Kansas Jayhawks fan, and always willing to help those I love.

Random Facts

I grew up in a small town in Kansas… the type where everyone not only knows your name, but also everything you did yesterday and if they didn't like it, you can bet your parents already heard about it.

Words of Wisdom

As a former AGA member galvanizer once told me about attitudes on HDG - I already know the truth, don't confuse me with the facts!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all ones lifetime. ~Mark Twain
