Why Numana? Joining the Numana team was a no brainer for me. From the first conversation I had with Ashley and every day since Numana has felt like home. I was told that “The sky’s the limit to the impact we can make”. As followers of Christ we are called to give of our time, talent and treasure and my calling is service. I prayed about it and knew that this was a place I could put my skills, education and experience in the same arena as my passion and calling and together make a true difference in the lives of those in need. Where can we find you when you are not working? When I’m not working my life is filled with soccer practice, gymnastics, bitty basketball, girl scouts, boy scouts, and volleyball. My kids range from 18 to 7 months and my life revolves around them. They’re my greatest accomplishment ever. They are my entire world and when I’m not working we’re playing games, cooking, running around and enjoying the chaos that all too soon will settle down. In the blink of an eye they go from diapers to graduation and I am cherishing every hectic, messy, amazing moment. Tell us one thing you could not live without. Coffee. Coffee is life! I would probably go crazy without it. Favorite quote “Ironing boards are just surfboards that stopped following their dreams and settled for a boring job. Don’t be an ironing board.” AND “ Whatever you do in life, do it with the enthusiasm of a 5 year old in a new Batman shirt.”
