Some days you’re the windshield, some days you’re the bug.
What attracted you to Marick?
The chance to advance professionally while working with people I like.
Twenty plus years in publications production, several years in the horticulture industry, six years in Federal LMS support. I cut my professional teeth on customer service and find that it serves me well, no matter what the job.
BA in English from The College of William & Mary, graduate classes at GW University
Hobbies/Causes/Charities (any or all of the above):
Gardening, animal welfare, environmental causes. I love attending craft shows but find them a danger to my bank account!
What was your first job?
First job ever was babysitting; first “real” job was working for the Northern Virginia Sun newspaper as the telephone operator/Girl Friday. First job out of college was working for the Airline Pilots Association.
Do you have any musical talents?
Does having a nephew with a college scholarship for French horn count?
