Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A: I have been a wife to the sweetest man for ten years. We have the sweetest little 9yr old boy, who is also
quite the comedian.
I am a military veteran. I spent 12 years in the Army National Guard as a medical specialist/combat
Q: Tell us about your role at Cable One.
A: I am a senior field technician. I am part of the technical fulfillment group, I am the backup for our
warehouse, and I am on the secondary backup for call shifts filling the need for lack of advanced techs. I
have been with Cable One for a little over eight years in total.
Q: Share one thing you like about the Cable One culture.
A: I do like the stronger together incentive. I truly like how we are always striving to put out a better
Q: Our new Cable One Ambition is to be the most trusted broadband provider for America’s small
cities and large towns. In your role, how are you living our Ambition?
A: I live the company’s ambition by being as thorough as possible at the job site. I take every
opportunity to learn about the plant. The more I understand, the more thorough I can be.
Q: How are you involved in your community?
A: I am part of the PTO (parent/teacher organization) program at my son's school and the parent
liaison for his school. My husband and I often help coach my son's baseball teams.
Q: What is it like to be a woman in a male-dominated field?
A: I have always been a woman in a male-dominated field. I suppose it is the “norm” for me.
Customers are often full of questions for me, so this reminds me that this is not what
they are used to.
Q: What advice would you give other women who want to explore a career as a Field Technician?
A: I would say if you enjoy working with your hands if you are a problem solver if you are physically
capable, and if you like to meet new people (customers) in a completely different light (customer
home), then this is a great field. Man or woman.
Q: Who are your female mentors/role models and how have they inspired you?
A: My mother is my biggest mentor. She always told me I could do whatever I wanted to do.
