What do you love about your job? I am always learning something new. I have heard from employees who have been working at Dion for many years that even they are still learning new things. I also enjoy seeing how each department works with one another and is dependent on each other to get work completed.
What drew you to Dion Label originally? I owned and operated my own business for over five years but felt it was time to try something new. When I learned about the open position at Dion and researched about the company, I was very intrigued. I never knew there was a label company here in my hometown that had such big name customers and created such high-end products.
What has been your favorite label in recent years and why? Black Birch Vineyard’s 2019 Estate Field Blend. I love its originality and overall design. Whenever I see this label I always have to stop and admire it. You can just tell the creativity, time and consideration put into this label by both Dion and Black Birch Vineyards.
Outside work, what activities do you do for fun? I love to spend time with my pets. My previous business was a pet sitting business so I still care for a few special cats and dogs when I can. I am currently learning to code and am focusing on app design. One of my college degrees is in fine art so I love to paint and visit museums. Other things I enjoy are traveling, video games and spending time with family and friends.
What is your personal philosophy? Always be kind and mindful of one another. We may not all share the same thoughts and opinions as others and we don’t always know what others are going through. Just be kind.
