I am a Mother, Wife & Girl Scout Leader for some amazing young girls. As the manager of the Paxem Consignment Showroom, my favorite thing is expanding my knowledge of unique items that come in and their individual history. I also love working for a family first company!
As long as I remember I love Antiquing with my grandma, “she called it "Ant I Ques.” She let me go through her drawers and cabinets and would tell me about all the glass and pottery that came from that area. It just makes me feel like that kid again looking at all the cool stuff she taught me about. To me, every new home is a new adventure.
I enjoy helping people in a time of their lives when they are starting a new chapter. Whether they are downsizing, organizing, or moving it is always different, a new adventure every day! When I am not working, you can find me exploring the outdoors, spending time with my family, and shopping for other people!
It is often very stressful and overwhelming when someone is downsizing, relocating and selling their parents’ home. I love to make that transition for people more relaxed, worry-free and enjoyable. It is very rewarding to see the progress we make and to see how grateful people are.
It is such a rewarding thing to see a smile and the relief on people’s faces after we have helped them move or just help them in organizing their belongings. It is never boring, as every day brings new challenges. The individuals with which I work make this job truly enjoyable.
The greatest joy I get from my job is hearing all about my client’s “story” There’s so much to learn from each and every one. After the job is complete, I smile, knowing that I had a small part in helping them move on to the next chapter. I love my job!
