I’ve worked at Secondwind since September of 2010. I came in and trained to become a Certified Water Specialist. I then used those skills in my business development efforts beginning in 2012. Now I am the company’s Business Developer.
At Secondwind, my current role is to connect businesses and people to water treatment resources, solutions and services. I belong to several trade organizations: residential building, commercial building, hospital facility management, and 2 realtor boards. Building relationships across different water treatment markets supports Secondwind by increasing our customers’ knowledge. It also allows our business partners a greater understanding of where we can support their clients’ opportunities.
Water touches just about everything at some point, and when the water quality isn’t what we need it to be, unhealthy, hard, acidic, etc., it can affect our health, the health of our homes and buildings, and the health of many manufacturing processes. I teach Continuing Education Classes CEU classes for realtors and home inspectors that review the concepts of water quality and that provide a greater understanding of where water quality matters.
Secondwind Water Systems is a small company that provides a working environment that is intelligent and high technology. The employees are loving and smart and care about each other. We work hard and keep the focus on our customers. Because our business relationships appreciate the reputation and integrity that Secondwind brings to the table, it feels good to be a member of the Secondwind team. Besides, I need to learn something new each day and this environment does that for me!
Most of us enjoy seeing the fruits of our labors. My personal fulfillment lies in the connections with the people I’ve developed and nurtured relationships with. They pick up the phone and call us for information, product and/or service after meeting me or attending a presentation I’ve given. It gives me great satisfaction to know that what I understand and what I teach about water quality make a difference. I try to leave a smile on people’s faces so the association with our company is positive.
Describing someone in 3-5 words is a way to provide a broad overview. I hope I come across as a dynamic thinker in addition to the below 5 words that my dearest friend has offered: Smart, Proud, Go-getter, Tenacious, and Loving.
I’d never worked at a company for longer than 3 years when I joined Secondwind in 2010. At this point in time, 7 years later, I still enjoy my fellow employees and the business of finding where water touches everyone’s lives so much that I don’t see myself working anywhere else, ever. Secondwind likes to be proud and on the ball like I do; a match that works for all of us and for all our customers.
