As a Customer Service and Retail Sales Representative, I do a bit of everything! I am one of the first staff members people see when arriving at the Elgin Service Center. I help people with whatever they need when they walk through the door, from making a purchase in the Council Store to meeting with members of the Program team about an upcoming event. I'm a people person, so I love working with our volunteers and girls!


I love what Girl Scouts stands for.  I tell people I took this job because I needed a job.  I stay because I need THIS job!
