Service Manager
Michigan, Traverse City | Staffing

I am currently the Service Manager in our Traverse City office. Which means I work personally with our clients to ensure that we are providing them with exceptional service. I work with my team to recruit, hire and obtain the best employees we can and provide them with the tools to thrive and prosper in their new roles. We work hard to find the best possible match for both our clients and employees. It is my goal to help create and build those lasting relationships. There is no greater reward than helping to find an eager job seeker their new CAREER!

Before AccessPoint, I worked in the pond and water feature industry. The company I worked for was a manufacturer and distributor of pond products and it was my job to work with our distributors and build client relationships. I did this for several years until I found myself relocating to the Traverse City area and joining this great team!

My family is easily the most important thing in my life! I could talk all day about my wonderful husband and children.  We also have two rowdy and rambunctious dogs that we wouldn’t trade for anything! In my free time, I love to spend time with my kids, we love to have family game nights. I love sports, especially football! Sunday afternoons in the Fall are the best!
