Hire Date: June 14, 1976
What was your first position at Mi-T-M?
Secretary – It included secretarial, receptionist, bookkeeping, purchasing, anything related to office work. When I was hired it was just AJ, I and one other guy (Jerry Brimeyer) in the office and there were just a couple guys in the shop.
What is your current position at Mi-T-M?
Sales Administration Manager
Is there one memorable moment or outstanding memory from Mi-T-M that you’ll always remember?
One would be AJ calling from the road and asking “Where am I?” because he was travelling so much. Another memorable time is when we starting making terrific sales. When I was first here, there were months when we were lucky to sell a couple units. It was such a shock when we started having single days when the sales equaled annual sales for some of our early years. I am still amazed at some of our sales days and where all that equipment goes.
What are you plans after retirement? Or what are you looking forward to doing once you retire?
The summer will be spent with the grandkids. We will spend quite a bit of time at our timber (especially my husband). Mostly I am looking forward to relaxing and not feeling rushed to get things done.
For people just starting at Mi-T-M, what would you say to them or tell them? (advice, tips, guidance, etc.)
Mi-T-M is a great place to work. You can tell by the number of employees who have been here for so many years. If you have any questions, there always is someone there to help you out.
Anything additional you’d like to mention?
While I am really looking forward to spending time with my husband and family, I am going to miss my Mi-T-M family terribly. When you have been together for as long as some of us have been, you develop a bonding relationship. I think some people here are aware that in December, it hit me hard that I was actually going to be leaving Mi-T-M and how much I will miss the day-to-day interaction with these special people. However, as retirement nears I am really looking forward to this new phase in my life.
