When did you start working for PMF?
September 15, 2014.
Describe your role here.
I work in the Marketing Department as a business development associate. This means wearing many hats. I work on any and all projects that enable us to reach out to potential customers, such as preparing for trade shows, doing written correspondence, as well as research to find companies that could be potential customers. I also work on our retention project that ensures all of our current customers are happy with our services. I also love being supporting our sales team and helping them bring in new customers.
What do you like best about your career at PMF?
I love my PMF Family. I feel like my work makes a difference in the lives of our customers. Our Christian and loving company culture is all about relationships, with our customers and each other. I always look forward to coming to work every day.
Tell me about your family—in addition to PMF :).
I grew up in Auburn, AL and graduated from Auburn University. I have been married for 36 years. My husband and I are members and attendees of the Auburn United Methodist Church. I am blessed to have my 88-year-old Dad still living at home really close by and I get to visit him every day after work. I have an older sister who lives in Clarksdale, MS with her husband. She has two sons. I also have a younger brother who lives in Seattle, WA with his son. I love them all tremendously. My husband's family is much bigger than mine. I have 8 nieces and nephews and 8 great-nieces and nephews, all of them except four live in Athens, AL. I am very blessed to have them as part of my family.
Sounds like a busy life. In a good way. What do you like to do with any spare time you can find?
I love to read, plant flowers, spend time at the beach, and visit family as often as possible.
Here's a fun question. You and I grew up during the same era. (We don't have to say exactly which one (wink). What was your favorite song in high school?
Just You and Me - Chicago and Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder
I remember those! Now, here's a random question: if you had a $5,000 gift card for anywhere, where would you max it out?
Amazon. Or maybe Kohls. Or any store that sells flowers and plants.
Sounds like a plan to me!
