Mentors and how have they assisted you in your career:
Through my 16 years in the CPG industry, I have been very fortunate to work with many confident and dedicated women that have shown me what it is to be a true professional.  From them, I have learned the importance of attention to detail, how to maintain confidence and composure in high stress situations, and that it’s OK to say no sometimes.  Women in the Network of Executive Women continue to inspire me with their constant positive outlook and high energy.

What are you most proud of in your career achievements?  Do you have a defining moment of your career to date?
Having been employed by two fantastic organizations in this industry has been a blessing.  My time at the E&J Gallo Winery and participation in their management development program was instrumental in building my skill set in sales and analytics.

King Arthur Flour is a rare example of sales success, corporate responsibility and an employee-centered work environment.  I feel very fortunate to have found a home at King Arthur Flour, a 100 percent employee-owned company.  I am proud to be a part of an organization and team of sales and marketing professionals that emphasizes both personal growth and team success.

Most challenging part of your job:
I am often involved in multiple projects across several different departments.  Creating appropriate timelines and deadlines in order to produce the highest quality work across the board can often be challenging.  Being a working Mom, balancing priorities and projects while maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be difficult, but is extremely important to me and my family.

Advice for upcoming younger executives:
Be true to yourself, and work with integrity.  Let your personal values guide you, and you will never be disappointed with the outcome.

Hobbies:
Spending time with my husband and our seven-year-old daughter, baking, enjoying great food and wine with friends.
