Favorite part of working at Borton and now Chelan Fresh: I started working for Borton Fruit on St. Patrick's Day in 2003, marking 14 years this past March (3/17/03)!
I started out invoicing for the sales department and then moved up the ranks to Sales Assistant and then my most recent position as Assistant Director of Sales and Marketing. Now I manage A/R, customer requests and presentations, and also coordinate all of the outside meetings and food shows along with the related travel.
Borton Fruit has been an amazing company to work for and I'm very thankful for how good they have been to me over the past 14 years. I have learned so much and met so many amazing people who will remain in my life forever from my time spent there.
Making this transition to becoming a Chelan Fresh employee is very exciting. Over the last three months I've been working very closely with the new team from Chelan Fresh and couldn't be happier to be joining a very reputable company in the industry. When two industry leaders come together in an effort to provide outstanding quality and service to our industry year round, you just have to feel blessed to be a part of it.
Favorite thing to do outside of work, something that is near and dear to your heart: I love spending time with my friends family, significant other David and our two boxer kiddo's Layla and Titan. We really enjoy anything outdoors, especially going to the beach, hiking and playing on the water. We have some inflatable paddle boards that we can't get enough of and love to take out on the lake any opportunity we have. We are also big Seahawks fans and try to make it to as many games as possible each year. We have a huge, amazing family and some awesome friends so we are constantly on the go and feel very blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives.
