Favorite Part About Working for Cooley: Every day is different so it keeps it interesting and I love to interact with people.
Favorite Cooley Story: We receive holiday gifts from some of our vendors. One year we received a bunch of boxes, which we thought were our PO’s, so we put them in our storage closet. After about 4 months there was a certain odor in the air that we couldn’t figure out what it was. It turns out that the boxes were not our PO’s but Lebanon Bologna from one of our vendors. Needless to say, we now get chocolates from this vendor and it’s opened immediately!
Your Proudest Professional Moment: Moving from customer service to sales within the Cooley Group. I had been with Cooley for about 18 years and had mentioned that I would love to try the sales side of the business. They decided to give me a shot since they were very happy with my customer service skills. That was 18 years ago! I love my Cooley family.
Your Proudest Personal Moment: Buying a house and providing for my 3 boys all by myself. It was tough at first but with help from friends and family I survived and have become a much stronger person.
Favorite Hobbies: I love to play slot machines and bingo. I get this from my mom, she loved it too.

Fun Fact(s) About Yourself: I am the second youngest in a family of 8. Family is very important to me. We try to get together at least once a year for a family reunion/cornhole tournament or down to Florida to visit my 93 old Dad, who is still going strong.
