What does your day look like as an InCord Play Sales Manager?
I spend my days discussing rope and netting applications of all kinds. I am in constant communication with new and existing customers, our production team, and my sales coordinators to ensure our customers' projects are on track to be produced and installed successfully. Knowing my customers are receiving a product to provide safety and FUN makes all the hard work worth it.
Who inspired you to pursue the career you have today?
Robin Ritz, InCord's owner and Creative Visionary. Robin has been a mentor and excellent support to me over the years. The tools and techniques she has helped me develop have made me a more confident leader and communicator, not only in my professional career but also in my personal life.
What is a unique part of working here?
The wide range of applications our materials can be used for is fascinating. Sometimes a customer proposes a new and unique project for which we get to collaborate on a solution. Those interactions and innovations are always exciting.

I love maintaining my garden, doing work around my home, and spending time with my family.
