I have been a McWane Ductile employee since July 1981, when I was hired for the inside sales/customer service position in the Portland, OR office. In 2003, I transitioned to the outside sales representative position, covering Oregon and southwest Washington. Prior to joining McWane Ductile, I enrolled in business classes at Great Falls Commercial College in Great Falls, Montana, followed by a move to the Portland, Oregon area, where I became employed as a receptionist/office manager for three years. I am inspired by the camaraderie of the team I work with at McWane Ductile. Everyone works hard at supporting each other. As a member of American Water Works Association, it is rewarding to network with so many tremendous people in the waterworks industry and to be a resource for questions and information regarding Ductile iron pipe; promoting a long-lasting, sustainable product that is utilized in providing safe, clean drinking water to cities and communities. I enjoy traveling, going to see plays, reading, walking, and watching my favorite sports teams – Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers. I have one daughter, love animals, and spending time with family and friends.
