I joined Premier (known as Printec Press at the time) in 1983 just after graduating from the University of Illinois with a BFA degree in Industrial Design. What was supposed to be a temporary graphic design position lasting no more than 2 weeks ended up lasting about a year.
When a sales position became available, I accepted it thinking I would enjoy the creative side of selling, which I do. I like helping clients with things like selecting ink colors and special papers, making mock-ups, and anything else I can contribute.
I cannot imagine working for a company I like as well as Premier. My co-workers have the can-do attitudes and skills that allow me to sell a project with confidence. There is a great degree of satisfaction in being known for turning out the consistently high quality that my clients have come to expect and appreciate.
My husband, Jack, and I live in Champaign, Illinois and we have two daughters. Jenna is a junior at the University of Kentucky, and Lizzy will be a freshman at the University of Illinois in the fall. We also have a large black Lab named Smokin' Joe.
All four of us enjoy golf, and I am involved in volunteer work with various organizations.
