What is your personal quote?
S*&* happens. Actually, I don’t have one.
What attracted you to Marick?
The workings of the Mar/ick brains intrigued me. The flexible work schedule. The professionalism even in the most challenging moments (no, it’s not good customer service to inflict pain; breathe instead). The job posting on the Marick website was the clincher.
Customer service (being mindful that everyone has a story that impacts their attitudes and you may be the unintentional target at the moment), accounting, retail, publishing, yelling at Excel, Word, PowerPoint – at any given time.

Three things that many people don't know about me
- I watch CNBC.
- I hate “reality” shows. Reality? Really?
