I attended University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NE and Louisiana State University in Shreveport, LA studying marketing and computer science. I also studied photography and graphic design and went on to teach it at The Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology in Dayton, OH.
Provide an overview of your industry experience.
My experience in the HVAC industry was by circumstance of employment. I was a marketer for A. O. Smith in Tipp City, OH for nearly 20 years. I also was marketing and inside sales director for Aeroseal, an innovative duct sealing technology that has won many awards and recent acclaim as the most effective way to seal leaking airducts.
Tell us about your family.
I have two beautiful, intelligent daughters who have given us a total of 8 grandchildren: Ridge, Greenlee, Presley, Lakelynne, Tudor, JJ, Layla and our newest little guy, Maximillian. They provide the greatest joy of my life!
What hobbies do you enjoy?
I fish. I fish like a girl who knows how to fish. It’s my thing. I go back to Alaska nearly every other year when the salmon are running and restock my freezer with silvers, kings, sockeye and pinks.
What do you like best about working for Jackson Systems?
I had met some of the folks at Jackson Systems during my work at Aeroseal and had never seen a group of people who seemed to enjoy working so much. I was honored and thankful when they asked me to join their team. It’s been fun so far and I really enjoy the team I’m on. Since I’ve come on board, I’ve learned that many times over Jackson Systems has won “Best Places to Work” in Indiana. I can see why!
Which is your favorite Jackson Systems’ product and why?
My favorite Jackson Systems product is all of them! Jackson Systems’ zoning dampers and panels are the perfect solution to many comfort problems. Our line of smart stats is fabulous and offered at excellent prices. And, some of the other solutions we have can’t be found anywhere else. I’m proud to represent the innovations that Jackson Systems produce!
