A: I'm in my 14th year with the company. I started in Urbana Illinois, with Scitec. Time really flies when you’re having fun!
Q: What was your job function in the early years with Scitec?
A: I was initially offered a position as a Marketing Assistant. In that role I coordinated all of our corporate tradeshows, lead management, and database management. Within my first two weeks, I began to also work in parallel as a Sales Assistant, primarily with our Hospitality Team.
Q: What is your role today?
A: I serve as Director of Operations, working directly with our Order Management, Production, Technical Support and Logistics teams.
Q: What do you like about Cetis? What’s kept you here all these 14 years?
A: There are so many things I love about what I do every day. Much of our daily interaction is with people we’ve literally known and worked with for years. We get an opportunity to know them far beyond their immediate business needs. We know when their kiddo graduated and how the party went. We get to hear who caught the biggest fish during their family vacation. It’s an entire extended friendly network of people. I also get the privilege of working along side what I consider to be some of the best, brightest and most dedicated team members you could hope to meet. These are just a small sampling of the things that help me continue to love what I do.
A: Everything possible! Since transferring to our Colorado-based World Headquarters in 2009, I’ve really enjoyed exploring and photographing the beautiful landscape here in the Rocky Mountains. Hiking in the mountains with our beagle never grows old. When the weather isn’t quite as cooperative and those mountains get several feet of snow on them, I like to stick close to home where I enjoy creating all sorts of goodies in my home studio.
