"It's all what you make it."
From daily tasks and objectives to big-picture thinking, my role is a fundamental “glue” that brings together sales, business development, purchasing, compliance, and technology. I’m at my best when I can bring my creativity and intrigue together with my eye for efficiencies, structure, and processes to solve problems and make us better every day.
My role at TRI allows me the flexibility to cover a lot of ground day to day and cross over departments. Having this experience allows me to deliver marketing objectives and center TRI’s brand around what we do best. As the Director of Marketing & Business Development, my goals are to develop and deliver a marketing plan, manage our corporate brand strategy, and increase our marketplace through campaigns and exposure.
I graduated with a BA in Marketing from Seattle University and worked various roles in retail throughout my youth before moving into personal banking for 3 years.
I joined TRI in March of 2005 as an Operations Assistant and quickly moved into a full-time Customer Service Representative role where I learned the daily operations of the import/export business. One year later I moved up to Sales Assistant, where I supported the sales and management teams and developed a formal TRI marketing and sample program. In 2007, I proudly transitioned that role into a full-scale Marketing role and department that continues to grow through the present.
Generally, all things outdoors, if possible, on or near water such as lakes, rivers, or ocean beaches. I spend most of my free time hiking, kayaking/canoeing, or fishing (learning how fly fish since Nov 2018 and loving it!). When not outdoors, I enjoy cooking, crafting and spending quality time with loved ones.
We are like a family – relationships and friendships, people I can trust and enjoy working with day to day.
I can’t sit still. Ever. Not 100% true, but I am always up and down and on the move.
