What brought you to Leggett?
Prior to Leggett, I had been working on IT projects in the retail field. I moved to Arkansas for my last position, and I heard about Leggett after working so closely to Leggett’s Corporate Headquarters. I quickly became intrigued by Leggett’s broad scope of products, customers, and industries.

What’s something surprising about you?
Although I was born in Germany, I grew up in West Africa and then studied in France. I speak English, French, my native language Ewe, and I’m learning Spanish too!

What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
For me, it’s two-fold: At work, I want to build relationships and learn the ropes of the business. In my free time, I’m a marathoner and would like to gain speed in long-distance races. In 2016, I had a goal to run 16 races. In 2017, I had a goal to run 17 but I ended up running 18. This year, I’m focusing on speed instead!

What brought you to Leggett?
Prior to Leggett, I worked as the Finance Director for a non-profit organization. This position was a new and exciting opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. I had applied at Leggett several years ago as well, and I’ve been intrigued by the company ever since.

What’s something surprising about you?
I have two sons and three grandchildren. My granddaughter is nonverbal, so we’re all learning sign language to communicate with her. We’re taking it in little bits at a time. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband. We recently went to Hawaii, which was my favorite vacation by far.

What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
With only a month under my belt, I’m eager to learn more about Leggett! I had no idea the scope of the company, and I still feel like I have a lot to learn. I also want to be the best support I can be for the Internal Audit team as I start to travel to different branches for audit trips in 2018.

What brought you to Leggett?
I worked within the environmental field in project management for over 20 years, but I was ready for something a little different. Now I’m working with adjustable beds; how’s that for a change?

I know a few people who work for L&P and had always heard great things about the company. Also, when I worked for a national environmental non-profit, I approached L&P to be a community advocate for one of my bigger projects. The company was very receptive and supportive, and I never forgot that.

What’s something surprising about you?
My career history is pretty diverse. I have a degree in Natural Sciences, then later studied Business Administration. My project management and environmental experience comes from working for organizations such as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, the Kansas City Zoo, the National Audubon Society, and the City of Joplin.

What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
Since I started at L&P, I’ve picked up multiple projects, but all at different points in the development cycle. In 2018, I’d like to own a project from the very beginning – from design and development until the Las Vegas Market (a tradeshow where we showcase many of our products).
