What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
Specialty Pipe & Tube is a wonderful place to be employed. We have an outstanding group that works together and are lucky to have a very inviting work environment. We are a true team that takes pride in our duties. It’s easy to get up and get going when you’re blessed enough to be employed by a company that supports its employees and applauds the work that we do every day.
What do you do at our company? Explain.
I’m currently a sales associate and the biggest part of my job is creating positive and lasting relationships with our clients.
What has been your favorite project (or aspect of your job) so far?
I started at Specialty Pipe & Tube as the receptionist/billing clerk and then moved into inside sales and have also begun to learn the purchasing side of things. I can easily say my favorite aspect of the job is that I’m continuously learning different facets of how the company runs and look forward to learning more.
Apart from your work, what are some side projects or hobbies you have outside of the office?
I have a young child so outside of work my time is devoted to being the best parent I can be.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I love art and have an enormous appreciation for it in all its forms. I have some natural talent which I’ve been lucky enough to pass along to my child, who has also developed a passion for it. I love that it is something we share and can enjoy together.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Did you take it?
I feel that the best advice I have ever received is to keep your ears open and your mouth closed. I follow this advice nearly every day of my life. It’s amazing how much you can learn by simply listening.
