Account Representative

When did you start at Heritage and what was your first position?

September 2021- Account Representative

Define a great leader—what are some traits you think great leaders possess?

The qualities I think define a great leader are knowledge, kindness and the ability to listen. If you spend the entire time directing versus listening to what your team actually needs you don’t provide people the ability to learn or grow. I think the goal of a great leader should be to inspire people to be the best they can be independently.

Is there a female mentor or coworker you look up to at Heritage? If so, can you give a few reasons why?

I admire Sandra Bigelow a lot! She is smart, quick and always upbeat. She has always gone out of her way to help and advise me and it is so appreciated.

Do you have any tips, strategies you’ve employed, or lessons learned throughout your career that you would like to share with aspiring female professionals?

You can do this! We work in a male dominated industry and often I am the only woman at meetings, but I know just as much and am just as capable as everyone else in the room. And be ready to stand up for yourself, because there will be some people who want you to prove yourself extra hard just because you’re a woman. Brave women make history.
