I became a member of the Allied Wire & Cable family in May 2013, returning to the wire and cable industry after spending some time as an Investment Advisor and Mortgage Advisor.
For a combined 8 years, I was a Purchasing Manager at Electrol Company, a wire harness, cable assembly, and control panel manufacturer, and at Affiliated Products, a wire harness manufacturer.
I have been married to my best friend, Jeff, since 1986. He has two daughters and 5 grandchildren who live in Florida, where Jeff is from. I am a Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin native, and lived in St. Petersburg FL from 1978-1989. After that, I returned home to family and reside in 5 lake country, in the town of Oconomowoc (which means land of falling waters).
My hobbies include cooking, hiking, boating, reading, and outdoor landscaping/gardening (we have a large yard that we turned into a park-like setting) to enjoy with our dog named Dirtyface, an Australian shepherd. Much of my time is spent active in organizations that support the Shrine Hospitals for Children.
I am grateful and excited to be part of the Allied Wire and Cable family, growing across the country! I firmly believe that manufacturing is what will make our country strong again, and it is wonderful to have an active role.
