35 years industry experience including commercial and residential design, sales and management. Attended Brown Mackie Business College.

I work at Spaces because it continues to give me the opportunity to live my entrepreneurial spirit and pursue my God-given purpose to help people grow into being the best they can be at what they want to do. It is an added benefit to also be able to work with industry leading products like Knoll and DIRTT to build effective and amazing work environments.

My family sport is rodeo. We live on what we call the “Chasin Dreams Ranch” and compete all over the country year around.

Eight years industry experience. Spring Hill High School graduate.

I’ve never been told in an interview that “Your family comes first” other than at Spaces. I knew that I’d be able to be a mom and not be overwhelmed with a strict work schedule. When I started I was able to drop my kids off, go to work and be at the school in time to pick them up after school. It’s always been so flexible with work hours here and that takes the stress off all of us and it makes it easier to get your job done every day.

I can’t wait for my kids to get married someday and provide a lot of grandchildren for me to love!

I have worked at Spaces, Inc. since 2016. My degree is in History Education from Missouri State University.

Spaces has always been a part of life. My favorite toy growing up was a miniature Knoll truck and I never passed up the chance to play hide-and-seek with my sisters in the old showroom on Hauser. My first job was unloading trucks at Evologic in high school. I have never experienced anything like the group of people that have built this company into what it is. It’s a beautiful thing to be a part of.

My favorite type of furniture is a hammock.

I’ve never met a stranger, and I take long pawses throughout the day in the Spaces backyard. Greek Yogurt is a new snack I have come to enjoy. Woof! Woof!
