What I Like Best About the SSA
The annual SSA Conferences are terrific. I appreciate the friendliness, expertise and the invaluable information that is presented. In short, it’s a great opportunity to interact and learn from people who do what you do.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Bradley University.
Prior to joining the team at Hillshire Brands (formerly known as Sara Lee Corporation), I worked in Amoco Corporation’s Shareholder Services and Legal departments for 11 years.
I enjoy deep dish pizza, jazz, TJ Maxx and watching Judge Judy and Scandal. My Motto is: Define or be defined.
