I'm a McDonald's McVeteran, having had the privilege of working within the McDonald's system over the past many years, first as a Designer/Artist for the system through my own company, then an Owner-Operator for 12 years. After needing to move the family again to expand my restaurants, I decided instead to sell and return to the side
of the business that I loved; art/design and construction. I respect the McDonald's organization and have met and worked with wonderful, talented people over the years, value the many experiences and positions I've held. It is forever interesting to be a part of the changes that keep us relevant in this changing world.
If one advances confidently in the directions of his dreams and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected.
-Henry David Thoreau
I joined ISI several years ago in sales and design, and I am now honored to be a team leader for our McDonald's sales staff. Together we build sales and help put lots of smiles
on the faces of McDonald's customers as they walk into one of our newly designed restaurants. I feel privileged to be a team member within the ISI organization.
I studied design, but I was born an artist. From an early age, I adored all things artistic. As I grew up, I practiced and explored many mediums of art and my passion flourished as the years went on. I have been fortunate enough that I've been able to just live my passion everyday. There have been times throughout my professional career that I need to stop and pinch myself because this hasn't ever been "work" to me. I love my job. Outside of work, I spend as much time as I can, painting, in my personal home studio.
My husband and I married right out of high school. We grew up together and developed careers as we did so. We love to travel for fun; our favorite trip was a longer Mediterranean cruise where we visited many countries. He loves touring on his motorcycle, I stay with cars. We also love spending time with our three accomplished children and five spirited grandchildren whenever we can.
