Give us a little background on yourself.
I was raised in Oklahoma and followed my sister to Florida. For her to pick up and return to Oklahoma, I have stayed and been living here since then. I have a niece and two nephews… let’s just say I am the favorite aunt. I love country music and going to live concerts. I also enjoy exploring the great state of Florida. But my favorite thing in the entire world are my babies. And by babies I mean my two puppies.
How many years have you been in the industry?
I have been in the industry since I was 18 and have worked everything from restaurants to liquor sales to now working with chains at Eaton. I have been with Eaton since 2017!
Where is your favorite place to go out to dinner?
I love Brick & Mortar in St. Pete because the food is delicious. I also love Bern’s Steakhouse simply for the entire experience you get eating there.
Does it contain foodservice equipment represented by Eaton?
No, unfortunately not, but I do love every place that has Eaton equipment!
What do you usually order?
At Brick & Mortar, I absolutely adore the Beef Carpaccio with egg filled ravioli (mouthwatering). At Bern’s, I think it would be a disgrace if you got anything but the steak. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… the dessert room is where it’s at!
When you go out, what's your go-to drink?
Since I was a wine and spirits sales rep for quite some time, I truly appreciate a good glass of Sancerre. Or a delicious Old Fashion if made properly.
What are the favorite places you've visited?
Hands down, I will always go back to Jamaica. I have already been three times and plan on continuously going back. Something about reggae by the water with a good cocktail in hand...
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I have had a tremendous amount of growth in the past five years. So I can’t imagine what the next five will bring, but I am hopeful and excited to see what the future holds in both my professional and personal life. In five years I hope to be traveling a lot more than I am today. And enjoying those travels with friends and family.
