You know those speedy, people-movers in the airports? The ones that you hop on to get to your next destination in half the time of walking? Well, that’s what my day is like. All day. EVERYDAY.
The digital age is extremely fast-paced. Technology comes with a responsibility, and we here at Stuller always strive to provide the latest and greatest to our customers. As soon as I open the door each morning, I’m catapulted into a world of customization.
The CAD/CAM Services department originated in 2009 with the release of our “game changing” software, CounterSketch™. For those living under a rock, this sought-after software was created to customize any design from a comprehensive library of parametric styles giving the jeweler the ability to have limitless options to provide to their customers. This service provides customization at a jewelers fingertips and the best part? We do all of the leg work! And this is where I come in…
I’ve been a member of the Stuller family for over 21 years. I began my career here working the night shift in the shipping department at the sweet, naive age of 18. From there, I moved into manufacturing where the knowledge and experiences were plentiful. The company couldn’t hire associates fast enough to keep up with the customer demands. I had every opportunity to learn manufacturing, and I soaked up every ounce of what I could. Years flew by and I found myself in a department that truly made me the associate I am today. The Model department. This is where I learned true fabrication. This is where I was given the opportunity to learn from the most experienced associates that our company employed. This is where I blossomed into management.
Two years ago, I was given the opportunity to lead the CAD/CAM Services department. In all honesty, I was hesitant. I was hesitant to leave my comfort zone, the home that helped mold my work ethics into existence. Looking back now, it has been THE “GAME CHANGING” moment in my career. Every single day brings new opportunities to grow. This division has some of the youngest, brightest talent that will thrive in our tech savvy world. They bring the knowledge of their youth to the table every single day and my job is to try and harness their power. On the opposite side of the spectrum, we also have some of the wisest veterans on our team that bring your customized magic to life!
From design validation, to customer relations, on through custom manufacturing, our team has you, our customer on a pedestal. I couldn’t be more blessed and ecstatic that I have the opportunity to lead such an INCREDIBLE group of individuals. Together we WILL make you the HERO!
