I have been with Ashley Furniture for 30 years and feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work for such an amazing company that has allowed me to learn, grow and advance.

I began my career on the main switchboard and worked hard to learn all that I could to excel and continue my journey with Ashley.

Becoming a Supervisor and leading people has been the highlight of my career. Motivating, teaching and mentoring employees and watching them grow and advance is the greatest accomplishment I have.

I have been a Customer Service Supervisor for 17 years. I have groomed and mentored several employees that have become next level Leads and Supervisors. I believe I am ready and very motivated to take this next step and take on the responsibilities of Customer Service Manager.

I think of the qualities that have brought me to a leadership role: my vision, confidence, experience, unique skills, expertise... I am now reminded that other leaders share some or all of these qualities with me. These are the leaders I know I could be called upon to now lead. I will need to show direction and negotiate a vision for the organization that other leaders will continue to buy into. I will need to find ways to resolve conflicts over turf and power among other leaders so the organization can continue to grow and move forward. Continue to educate leaders; find ways to motivate people who may think they are already educated. I will need to create and gain trust and keep other leaders’ trust, which is most important and what our own leadership depends on. I am willing, capable and ready for this next chapter and ready for the challenge and the opportunity to grow and mentor our leadership team. Thank you for your consideration in this management role.
