Keys to Success
" Making connections and building
relationships has undoubtedly been the
biggest key to my success. One significant
way I've done this is by getting involved in
giving back to the security industry. "
" Volunteering has brought me into
contact with a wonderful, diverse group
of individuals who share similar interests
and values. Building connections and
expanding my network has opened doors
to new opportunities and collaborations. "
" I strongly encourage everyone to find
a way to give back. Regularly engaging
in volunteer work allows you to step
outside your comfort zone, gain new
perspectives, and develop empathy and
understanding. It provides an opportunity
for self-reflection and personal growth,
which I believe can contribute to your
overall success and happiness in life. "
Cherished Memories
" For several years, I was fortunate to
participate in ESA's Day on Capitol Hill.
Volunteers from many states would travel
to Washington, D.C., to meet with state
representatives to lobby on current issues
facing the alarm industry. "
" One year, I met with Jason Altmire,
a former member of the U.S. House of
Representatives from Pennsylvania's 4th
Congressional District. It was the final
meeting of the day, and I was excited to be
meeting my actual representative and his
staff to discuss the topics at hand. When
our meeting was nearly over, a bell rang
that alerted Rep. Altmire that he needed
to go to the House floor to cast a vote. He
invited me to join him. "
" I settled in the balcony and was
able to watch the entire process. I was
entranced by the process. Once the vote
was complete, Rep. Altmire gave me a
walking tour of the Capitol. He pointed
out multiple artifacts, as well as some
very interesting history regarding certain
pieces of art and parts of the building. It
was one of the most amazing things I've
ever experienced. Plus, he ultimately

ties, people of various backgrounds and
younger generations. Their unique experiences
- growing up in a different era
and having different cultural influences
- can lead to new approaches to business
challenges, as well as opportunities. "
" Workplaces that seek out and value
diversity tend to foster a sense of belonging
and engagement among employees.
A diverse workforce can also attract
top talent, as job seekers often seek out
inclusive and diverse workplaces. If every
business in our industry makes diversity
a focus with every call for new hires, the
entire industry will benefit. "
Her Legacy
" I hope people would recall that I was
friendly, respectful, committed and made
a positive impact on others. "

joined a committee to change laws on fire
suppression in college dormitories! "
Vision for Change
" If I could change one thing about the
security industry, it would be attracting
a more diverse workforce. For as long
as I've been in the industry, attracting
new employees to our space has been a
challenge. Attracting new and diverse
employees is an even greater one. "
" As an industry, we are missing out
on the fresh perspectives and innovative
ideas of different genders and ethnici
