How long have you been with Centerchem?
13 years this August!

What do you love about the industry?
It is a great blend of two of my personal interests: pop culture and science. There is always a new trend, claim or collaboration. But, there is also science underlying the marketing and the fun daily challenge is to find ways to successfully meld and communicate both.

What do you like to do when you are not working?
Travel! I love a good road trip but any time I get to put a stamp in my passport I will surely take. When stuck at home, I like to hang out (brunch) a lot with friends and my dog, Frankie.

Anything else you would like our customers to know about you?
It is a distant dream of mine to become a dog foster mom and have maybe 5, maybe 10 dogs running around all the time! I would especially love to offer my home to older rescues since they are often the worse-off in shelters and need some love in their final years.

Favorite Quote?
I've always been a fan of the "golden rule." Treat others as you would like to be treated.

What was the best concert you ever attended?
Probably, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at Arroyo Seco in Pasadena. He sounded perfect and to think he passed away just a month later is absolutely crazy. Paul Simon at the Hollywood Bowl is a close second.

Where's your favorite place in the world?
I don't think I have been there yet but, so far Venice is really special.

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is to listen more than you speak and think before you talk.

When I was 5, I was pretty sure I'd be a fairy princess cop who rode around on a "unicorn" aka scooter (no joke, that was my halloween costume at 5) when I grew up.
