As traffic coordinator, Ford ensures customers receive products

Written by Walsworth Staff

For the rest of this year, Walsworth will be featuring an Employee Spotlight series on its websites as part of the company’s celebration of its 85th anniversary. Walsworth’s people are our most important resource and the Employee Spotlights will give you a chance to get to know them better.

Shipping Department – Marceline, Missouri

At Walsworth, my title is Traffic Coordinator. I ensure our customers receive their product in a timely manner. In previous departments, I operated as a press clerk, CSR assistant, and I worked in scheduling.

In my day-to-day work, I work directly with the CSRs, our carriers, and employees within numerous departments

My love of books brought me to Walsworth!

I started my career in 1998, so I have been with Walsworth for about 24 years.

From childhood to adulthood, my favorite memories are from the annual Walsworth picnics. As a child, my mother worked at Walsworth so I was able to go. Now my children are attending.

What I love most about my job is the people I get to work with every day. My co-workers are awesome!

A fun memory I have from working in the Press Department is joking around with new hires. We would send the new hire to another department and ask for a Paper Stretcher. That department would send them to another.

If I had a personalized coffee mug at work, it would say, “Not today.”

When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading and planning fun activities with my kids.

I have three children, Cheyenne, Laura and Sam. We have a border collie named Luna, two cats named Whispers and Phoenix, and a bearded dragon named Spike.

Walsworth has allowed me to raise my children in a great community. My daughter Cheyenne was chosen as a Walsworth scholarship recipient.

I like to give back to my community by volunteering at sporting events.
