Hey everyone!! Lucky me, I was chosen to do this month’s Soapbox. As many of you know, I have been with the company for a long time and am currently the Sales Manager. I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about my time with the company.
As of this month, I have officially been with the company for 10 years!! When I found out about the job opening, I had no idea that I was applying for a position at a gun manufacturer… Hell I didn’t even know what they did! I started out as the receptionist and had no idea how much I would love this place! After a year of being the receptionist, I was promoted into the repair department, handling everything that was sent in for custom work and repairs, gradually becoming the Customer Service Manager. I thoroughly enjoyed running our customer service, we have some amazing customers!! 9 years later, I was offered the Sales Manager position.
I never thought I would be here for 10 years! But this company has become my family. During the last 10 years, I’ve had some ups and downs both personally and professionally. I had a baby, who is now 5 years old and I had the luxury of being able to bring him to work with me for the first 6 months! I’ve been through some tough relationships and am now happily married to the man of my dreams. Sandy and everyone at NAA has been more than supportive through all my trials and errors. NAA has been the career of a lifetime. I’ve gotten to travel all over the country, which has allowed me to meet so many customers and NAA fans. I’ve built some amazing relationships with customers, relationships that I will cherish for a lifetime.
I believe in our product and I believe in the company. I have always strived to do the best that I can and to be what I would want/expect from any other company, and I hope I’ve done so and beyond.
Well… That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Thank you all for taking the time to read my Soapbox and thank you all for the love and support of NAA! Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here.
Your Sales & Customer Service Manager,
