Position/Title/Specialty at Cratos Equipment: Regional Sales Manager for AR, LA, OK, TX

How did you get started in this industry? Why does it appeal to you?

I’m a career salesperson and made the switch from healthcare to the construction industry about two years ago. This industry fascinates me because its roots are simple and consistent, while at the same time it is constantly evolving with new and diverse technologies. As a sales rep, I have to believe in what I’m selling. I have to believe it can truly help someone. I believe our equipment can help contractors be more successful.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Easy. I would be a meteorologist. I’m a weather nerd.

Any favorite line from a movie?

“I feel the need, the need for speed.” Top Gun

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I’m an introvert at heart. I’m perfectly content reading a novel in a quiet room.

What are 3 words you’d use to describe Cratos Equipment?

Innovative. Family. Team.

When you have free time, how do you pass the time?

If it’s summertime, you will find me at the lake or pool. I also love college sports, and I’m a graduate of Texas Christian University. You will absolutely hear me cheering for Horned Frog football and baseball! Go Frogs!

What is something you learned in the last week (preferably at Cratos!)?

I learned to appreciate perspective. For example, “only” four hours to me might make a world of difference on a job site where it saves a customer two days of work.

What is the first concert you attended?

My dad took me to see the Oak Ridge Boys and Silvia when I was a little girl.

What music is on your iPhone/Android phone?

I can literally go from Mozart to Motley Crue, but the most frequently played music is Texas Red Dirt Country and 80’s hair bands.

What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Loading and unloading the dishwasher.
