Do you have any pets? Yes, dogs. I’d like about ten more!
How do you balance work and life? You have to know when to turn it off. There’s always more work to be done, but not giving yourself time to relax will be detrimental in the long run.
Why did you choose a career in sales? I was an Art major in college (funny, I know) and every personality test I took scored me at 10/10 in sales. I truly think based on my personality traits I’m meant to be in sales. I’m super competitive and I always want to be number one.
How do you motivate yourself? I’ve always tried to be the best version of myself, every day. If you’re not progressing then what’s the point?
What are your future aspirations? Other than being the Queen of the World, I just want to be very happy in whatever I’m doing.

What is your best memory of a sale you won?
I went through heavy contract negations with the City of Reading and eventually closed the deal.
What is your favorite hobby? Darts
What is the best advice you have ever received? “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
What are your future aspirations? To continue to grow intellectually and lead my own team.
What are you currently watching on Netflix? The Witcher
Do you have any pets? Yes, 3 cats – Sam (a.k.a Lam Lam), Misty (a.k.a. Missmosh), and Mila (a.k.a. Peeps).
Why did you choose a career in sales? It’s like managing your own business but with great support from ENGIE. So, I like the control but I also like helping people. There’s nothing like making customers happy. It’s awesome.
What’s the last book you read? The Tattooist of Auschwitz
What is your best memory of a sale you won? I was only a year and a half into ENGIE, I was still green but put into practice to ask all the right questions. I did this for a large deal and won it right way from TXU! Still have it to this day.
If I won the lottery tomorrow… I would retire and travel the world, and open multiple rescue no kill animal shelters.
What is your hometown? Bluford, IL (aka Middle-of-Nowhere USA)
What is your favorite sports team? I don’t have a favorite sports team, but my favorite sport is UFC.
Why did you choose a career in sales? Because I’m a people-person. I like interacting and developing relationships with people.
If I won the lottery tomorrow… I would whisk away my 2 sons, grandson, and daughter-in-law to a tropical place to happily live out the rest of my days.
What was the best concert you ever attended? There are too many to nail down just one, but the top 2 that come to mind are Placebo (UK Band) in Mexico; and seeing Def Leppard/Journey with my childhood friend. It was a reunion for us. We danced and sang to every song. It’s the music we grew up listening too. (Yes, I’m old.)

How do you motivate yourself? I like to create a list and feel satisfaction when crossing off an item.
What are your future aspirations? To become a successful leader in the company.
What animal would you say you are most like and why? I’m an ant because ants are hard workers, committed to working as a team, and often achieve impressive results despite their size.
