My career in the car industry started in 2001 as a sales representative. After a year I moved into a sales management position, which I enjoyed for the next four years. I eventually worked my way into the finance department, where I have been working as a Financial Services Manager since 2005. I love working with people, helping to make their dreams of vehicle ownership into a reality. On a personal note, nothing makes me happier than spending time with my family, especially my year and half old grandson, ideally poolside with a cerveza in hand. Me in a Few Questions If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do? Move to the Caribbean and never look back Best meal you ever ate? Schnitzel dinner What is your morning mug filled with? Coffee with cream What is your perfect pizza? Pepperoni, bacon, sausage What cheers you up? My family What is on your bucket list?

After working in the food industry for over 30 years, my love and passion for cars overtook and my career at Waterloo Nissan began, which has spanned almost two decades. A long standing, familiar face here, I have been part of the Waterloo Nissan family since 1998. My love of vintage muscle cars has steadily increased over the years, especially due to being immersed in the car business. I have proudly been an honorary director of the Kitchener Rangers organization since 1979 and try hard to never miss a home game. When I am not hard at work making my customers happy, you can find me playing in the Preston Scout House marching band, toiling away in my garden or cruising in my classic car. Me in a Few Questions Where's Home? Kitchener born and raised Best compliment you have received? Honesty If you could retired tomorrow, what would you do? Nothing but car shows and fishing What is your morning mug filled with? Coffee XLDD What cheers you up?

I joined the Waterloo Nissan team in the fall of 2015. After several years in the beauty industry, I decided to take a leap of faith and try my hand at automotive sales, and it was the best decision. I'm honored to be a part of the Nissan brand, whose innovation and focus on quality constantly impresses me. The best part of my job is helping my customers find their perfect vehicle. It brings me so much joy, when I hand my customers the keys to their new car. My time outside of work is spent with my family; my husband and retired racing greyhound, Paxton. Whether you're looking for the family vehicle, a commuter car, or a summer toy, I am always happy to help! Me in a Few Questions: Where's Home? Breslau The last book you read? Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer What is on your bucket list? Spend a year traveling through Europe with my hubby Where else would I run into you? Walking the trails of Bechtel Park with my dog What cheers you up? My dog's sweet, elongated face I joined the Waterloo Nissan team in the fall of 2015.

I started with Waterloo Nissan in the spring of 2016. After almost a decade in the beauty industry, I decided to make a total 180 and try out a completely different field. I have no regrets about this decision as I have loved my experience working here. I enjoy the people that I am working with and have learned a lot about an industry that I previously knew very little about. Maybe one day soon I will actually take the plunge and learn to drive a car now that I am constantly surrounded by them. Me in a Few Questions The last book you read? The Amityville Horror Where else would I run into you? Ethel's Lounge, Princess Cinema, Encore Records What was the last picture you took with your phone? My son looking depressed after I totally destroyed him in a game of 'Sorry' #sorrynotsorry What is your favorite thing to spend money on? LP's - my husband and I are obsessive record collectors Your hidden talent? Epic karaoke skills I started with Waterloo Nissan in the spring of 2016.
