Life to me means friends and family who you can trust and who trusts you. Quality time with my three wonderful children and husband is priceless. We enjoy visits to the beach, going to the zoo, horseback riding, and family vacations.
I enjoy working at Credit Suite with a great team and being able to help others achieve their goals and dreams.
I have worked with the amazing Finance Team with Business Finance Suite/Credit Suite for 3 years. I have seen it grow and do amazing things. I enjoy my job because the finance team is a great group of people that work hard and make me laugh. My husband and I are celebrating 20 years of blissful marriage and we have two teenage kids that love to travel the world with us. My 18-year-old son is living in Africa for 2 years and my daughter is in high school. I love running with friends and enjoy spending time in the mountains and on the beach.
I come to the team with an extensive background in the Sales and Customer Service industries. I currently oversee Credit Suite's Business Development efforts, including broadening our network of Direct Lenders and focusing on high volume lead generation.
Prior to joining Credit Suite, I spent 7 years with CarMax, the Nation's largest used car retailer. I was over the establishment and bi-monthly functioning of 2 on-site Auto Auctions and participated in purchasing millions of dollars’ worth of used vehicles all across the Western United States.
I find joy every day in being able to discover the needs of business owners of all sizes and getting them connected with the products and services that literally change their lives and the lives of their families and those whom they work with.
I received a B.A. in Public Relations and Advertising from Weber State University.
