I moved to the Bay Area from Southern California in '96 after spending 14 years in the hospitality industry. A friend referred me to Moderne Drapery where Bob was at the time. I loved the job right away despite it not being my area of expertise. It was a great fit with my background.
My typical day is non- stop, interesting! Multitasking, emails, phone communications throughout the day, takeoffs from plans, assembling proposals, shop drawings for submittals, ordering product, requesting quotes from manufacturers, creating change orders, writing up installation instructions. I often spend time on revision of proposals. We always want it right for our clients.
A poorly written set of plans and specifications can be frustrating but I'll turn things around with my excellent people skills and the appropriate humor needed, so we work through the situation correctly!
I'd like our General Contractors and customers to know I want to work with them friendly and accommodating. I'll go that extra mile to ensure success for them and I am loyal. We're" not just a one job and done company", we want our customers to all be repeat customers! This is what we would like them to know. This is what we work towards every day. A relationship of trust and competence to do what is in their best interests.
Bob and I are a team; we collaborate on large projects, share each other’s knowledge of products, installation techniques and competitive pricing strategies.
What about you personally? I'm fun, outgoing, adventurous, love outdoor activities of all kinds. Prefer comedy over drama.
