Q: What excites you the most about joining the LOTH family?

A: I am really excited to work for a company full of great people who are really at the top of their game. The resources that LOTH + Steelcase bring together is a recipe for success!

Q: What is your favorite space in our Work Studio and why?

A: I love the living room. It is a warm and inviting space for small informal conversations, but is also equipped with the technology needed for collaboration and meetings.

Q: What do you love most about being in the world of sales?

A: As a salesperson, you have the opportunity to solve problems for your customers. You’re constantly learning and using that knowledge to create solutions. You get to lead a team, and you are rewarded for your efforts.

Q: If you could have one Steelcase product in your house what would be it?

A: With so many great Steelcase partner companies, it would be hard to choose, but I have always loved the SW1 chair from Coalesse.

Q: Share some fun facts about yourself for our LOTH readers to learn…

A: I am originally from Southern California. I have three daughters, two stepsons, a dog and a cat. My husband and I live in a circa 1880 Italianate house in Covington. We are wine lovers and enjoy discovering new wines and visiting wineries around the area. We have a farm – no animals – just a bunch of grapevines, and we hope to make our own wine someday.
