Interesting Snap-on Stories: The upper management here is so approachable and welcoming. When I started working at Snap-on, I didn’t know many of our top executives. I would often run into them in the hallways, and they would wave, say hi, or chat. All of the managers and supervisors I have worked for have always been very accessible and helpful. Snap-on has a positive, motivating work environment, and I know that can be credited to the fabulous leadership.
An Interesting Thing About My Snap-on Story: I initially accepted a position with Snap-on as a temporary associate covering for an ill coworker. As time went on, my manager and director entrusted me with more important projects, and I was able to more clearly demonstrate my strong skills. Snap-on is dedicated to a strong, committed work environment, and it shows in their leadership.
Recent Accomplishments: While working at Snap-on, I completed and graduated this year from Alverno College with a degree in Integrative Studies with an emphasis in Professional Communication.
Family: I was in foster care, and I now have a small group of people that supported me along the way that I call my family.
Hobbies & Interests: I really enjoy sewing, film-making, and rock climbing. I am also very interested in advocacy work, particularly for foster children. I am currently working on a project called Love Speaks Hope, which will help empower and unite foster children through story-telling. I’m hoping to be an example to foster children that they can lead happy, successful lives if they are willing to believe in themselves and work hard. My job at Snap-on has given me the confidence to reach out and say to these children, “You absolutely can do it; don’t give up!”
Favorite Snap-on Item: I absolutely love the socket bottle openers. Sadly, it is discontinued now, but everyone I show thinks it is just the greatest little gadget. I also really like my magnetic screwdriver set; it is perfect for all of my DIY projects around the house.
