Cathy, Buyer

I haven't always called Michigan home. I was born in Ohio and moved to Rochester, Michigan in the middle of sixth grade. I love Rochester. I graduated from Rochester High School and have been there ever since. My daughter loves her school and her dance studio (the most important thing in life to her). I have two wild and crazy dogs that love to go to the dog park for social time. I think they might be a little spoiled. I enjoy going to the gym and working out. Kickboxing is my favorite! It allows me to use up any stress I am carrying around with me. My friends and family are crazy important in my life and I try to spend as much time with them as possible. I love being the favorite aunt to my niece and 2 nephews.

I really like spending time in downtown Ann Arbor while I'm at work. There's a huge variety of interesting little eateries to try, something we don't have in Rochester.

My title here at Lima Beads is "Buyer," but like everyone else, I do a bit of everything. Before Lima Beads, I spent many years at a very large retail chain, so I'm really enjoying working for a small company. I drive 60 miles each way to work - now that's love! My favorite part of my job so far is going to bead shows. I get to meet all the the new artists, check out all the latest techniques, and see what's coming next for our awesome industry. Finally, I can't say enough about our amazing staff in the warehouse. We all work really hard, but still manage to have fun.
