What’s your name?
What do you do at TimeForge?
I help our team serve our customers, I help our partners serve their customers, and I help the industry solve problems.
How long have you been working with TimeForge?
A while now.
What’s your favorite part of working at TimeForge?
Problem solving and growth mentality. I love the fire-under-your-ass passion that this team lives and breathes, I love that our customers trust us to listen and help solve their challenges, I love the relationships we’ve built throughout the industry that allow us to know “the right guy” for anything a business needs, and I love the camaraderie and teamwork that drives all of it.
How do you make the lives of TimeForge customers better?
Listening. It’s the very best thing I can do for the businesses who choose to trust us with their labor. Because our amazing customers trust that we will listen, they’re willing to share feedback and challenges that I’m able to translate into resources, features, and improvements that revolutionize how the industry solves labor challenges. Our customer relationships are the reason we’ve managed to build and support the best option for anyone who has employees.
What was your first hourly job?
My first actual paychecks came from a small business consulting firm, where I was paid hourly to transcribe a customer’s podcast into SEO’d blog content (and take out the trash and do anything else that was needed done). But I often had little projects and jobs before then, earning cash to do odd jobs for family or babysitting.
What was your first restaurant or retail job?
I rented a booth in a small-town salon when I was 17, cutting, coloring, and styling hair, which was my first service industry job, but my job at a clothing store in a shopping mall was probably my first retail industry job. I cashiered and merchandised.
What’s your favorite hobby?
I love to bake, garden, and read classic science fiction. It’s a tie.
What’s your favorite sports team?
Whichever my kids are on at any given time!
Do you have any pets?
Yes, a big happy doof of a standard poodle named Barnabas.
