What do you do outside Paragon?
I am the mother of three active boys. They keep me busy! My husband, Steve, and I enjoy being outdoors with them. Our weekends are either spent fishing, hunting, and riding ATV’s or at baseball games, basketball games, and Boy Scout activities. During my rare quiet time, I catch up on my reading.

What do you find most interesting about kilns?
They have an incredible number of different uses. It is amazing what people can create and do with kilns.

What are your favorite types of kiln-fired ware?
Bling! I love to wear unique pieces of art.

What do you love most about working at Paragon?
No doubt the best part is the people. We are a family made up of diverse and interesting people. Everybody plays an integral role in serving the customer.
