Julie has been our "utility player" if you will.
Originally moving to Seattle to be our showroom
manager for the first couple of years, she then
took on the full time role as our Northern Oregon
rep. Colorado called to her and as opportunity in
that territory presented itself, she moved back to
head up our Rocky Mountain division. Julie has a
wonderfully creative eye and we miss that here in
the NW but look forward to what she will bring to
the new territory.
