WHY I LOVE MY JOB
Benefits & Payroll Manager
As a child, I heard people say, “I’m going to be a doctor (teacher, etc.).” They knew exactly what they wanted and had a clear career path to get there. All I could come up with was: Somehow I want to add value to the world and touch people’s lives in a positive way. That doesn’t present a clear path, but I knew God would show me each step as I was ready to take it—and He has done just that.
While raising my three wonderful children (my real all-time favorite job!), I received my business degree, which led me to human resources. My last five years at Kordsa has been a blessing. Kordsa Global has a strong commitment to its employees and to customers worldwide. My contribution to the company’s success involves providing and maintaining the best possible insurance, retirement savings plan and pay processes to Kordsa’s U.S. employees.
I’m proud of Chattanooga’s strong manufacturing heritage and it’s exciting that people of different cultures and backgrounds are continuing to join our area. I believe our manufacturing employees are a major part of the heart and foundation of our community and meeting their basic needs through company benefits is vital to our wellbeing.
Sometimes employees are frustrated when dealing with the challenges of paperwork and pay issues and they need someone to turn to for direction. It’s my pleasure being that “someone” at Kordsa. I love my co-workers and my job. A good day for me is when I have touched someone in a positive way by making their life a little more secure and less complicated.
