What excites you about being part of the Cherre family?
When I first interviewed with Cherre, I was extremely impressed by the values and vision of the company. Now that I am part of the Cherre family, I am blessed to work with colleagues that are true team players willing to help each other and work hard. It is exciting to be a part of an organization that is growing and evolving every day.
At Cherre, we are all snow leopards – what are you working on and what makes you unique?
In my role as Director of Sales Enablement, I help the Sales department be a well oiled machine. Each day, I am inspired to automate our processes and improve our Sales operations. I am a relationship builder who can juggle many hats while always keeping focused and driving results.
How do you give back to the community to change our world for the better?
In my local community, I am part of a junior women’s club that promotes volunteering, improving the community and raising money for local and national non-profit organizations. I was proud to chair a fundraising event that collected 150 pairs of shoes for the non-profit, Sole4Souls. Growing up I volunteered and earlier in my career I mentored NYC high school students. As my girls get older, I plan to instill these values by volunteering with them.
What keeps you curious and engaged to grow personally/professionally?
Challenging work that keeps me on my toes. The ability to make an impact on someone or something that’s important to me.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to stay active. I enjoy exercising whether it is running, yoga, cross training, hiking, skiing or swimming. My family and I like to be outside as often as possible. I love to travel, discover new wineries, enjoy concerts and go to the beach. I also have fun doing DIY home projects and decorating. My husband and I are hoping to get back into tennis one of these days!
What is the last book you read/movie you watched?
The last movie I watched was Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. Classic one!
If your life were being turned into a movie, who would play you or narrate your story?
I am a big fan of Reese Witherspoon so it would be amazing to have her play out my life in a movie. Narrating the movie would be the one and only Morgan Freeman. Another inspiring actor and what a voice!
