Cal Pac Painting of Nevada
How did you first get into your profession?
I was working at Nabors Cadillac in Costa Mesa, California and a friend told me Cal Pac was hiring. I joined the company in 1984 as a secretary.
What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
It is a lot easier today for a woman to get into this industry. I would tell her to keep knocking on those doors. Someone will let you in, you just have to find the right person.
What is a little known fact about yourself?
I used to be super shy. People who know me now wouldn’t believe that. I also like to personalize everything and am an avid outdoor hunter and fisher.
What was the toughest lesson you’ve learned in your career?
Don’t take on a job you can’t complete. The philosophy of “let’s just run harder and faster” doesn’t always work.
