What is your role at Mid-Cape? I am the kitchen and bath designer in the Plymouth Showroom
What led you to a career with Mid-Cape? I have my degree in Interior Design. I worked as a kitchen designer at Cape Cod Lumber for 10 years, took some time as a freelance Interior designer while my children were younger, then went to work at Morse Lumber for the past 7 years. I had an experience where I witnessed the support that Mid-Cape extends to its employees. It seemed like a family, and a family that I wanted to be a part of. With careful consideration and Dale’s encouragement (thanks Dale!) I decided to join the Mid-Cape team.
Describe Mid-Cape in three words: Reliable. Supportive. Leadership.
What is your biggest accomplishment at Mid-Cape so far? I would say turning the Plymouth showroom around to a place where Contractors and Outside Salesmen feel they have a designer they can rely on – on this side of the bridge.
What is something working at Mid-Cape has taught you? Mid-Cape has taught me that scheduling and organization is critical to success in a fast-paced environment.
So far, what has been your favorite memory at Mid-Cape? I have enjoyed the winter parties at Mid-Cape. They were a great way to meet people from the entire company, to intermix locations and departments and put names with faces. Oh – I also loved the Contractor night at the Boston Tavern for the same reasons… meeting the area contractors and outside sales teams was a lot of fun and very beneficial.
What does the Mid-Cape Experience mean to you? This team is amazing. No matter what I have a question on – there is always someone willing to stop what they are doing to help. Whether it be procedures, Spruce or general product knowledge… I know everyone is very busy and I find it nice that it’s an ‘all for one – one for all’ attitude here.
What’s the greatest bit of advice a Mid-Cape team member has ever given you? “Show up and give it your best effort.” ~Richard Standish
What is one important skill every person should have? I think everyone should be able to communicate efficiently – even so much as knowing which clients prefer a phone call over an email or text, or who needs more hand holding versus the guy who wants what he wants when he wants it. Communication is the key to any successful relationship – personal or professional.
What is one of the things on your bucket list? Rockefeller Center at Christmas time – any takers?
