I am called GiGi by two very awesome grandkids.
What is your favorite thing about working at The Mailworks?
The “family” atmosphere.

Love spending time with my family. We like to watch movies outside around the campfire, bike riding, camping in our backyard with the grandkids and just finding new adventures to explore together.
What is your best piece of career advice?
Don’t ever let fear hold you back.
Where is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled to?
A family trip to the Bahamas. It was a very long time ago, but it has never been forgotten. My dream is to one day take our grandkids there, as well.
How would you describe The Mailworks culture in 3 words?
Family-Oriented, Collaborative and Innovative.
What person, fictional or real, has inspired you the most?
My Mom…She never gives up on anything or anyone. She is a widow, a cancer survivor, was a single mom for several years and experienced a lot of bumps and bruises along the way, but she never never gave up. She taught me how to constantly look to God for strength, continually push forward, always be thankful and always forgive along the way.
What is your favorite thing about yourself?
Always trying to be positive, encouraging and uplifting.
