Her hobbies include traveling and tennis, and she is a self-proclaimed gym rat looking to give back to an industry that she loves.


WHY I WANT TO SERVE

I returned to the industry as a "nimble" distributor with the goal of doing what many owners long to do: just sell. I wanted an avenue for networking that would enhance my vendor partner relationships and provide interaction with industry professionals. I found this in VAPPA. Association events such as Eat. Learn. VAPPA., the Spring/Fall Showcases, and networking functions have offered me important tools and benefits that have contributed to my success. Now I just want to give back - I've been given, and now it's time for me to offer to give.
