What Did You Do Before Coming to Guardian?
Prior to applying at Guardian Self Storage, I spent 20 years working in retail. I also taught dance for 10 years.
Why Did You Leave Your Old Job?
I have known the Redl family for over 37 years. I met them through my brother when he was hired to help them clean and set up a store named Video Treats in Wappingers Falls. I began babysitting for the Redl family during that time.
My father passed away 17 years ago. At that time, Kari Redl Daniels approached me with a job offer. I began to work with Kari, Kelley Hardisty, and Judy Motter. They have been with me since that time and it has been such an amazing journey! They are truly my family as well as my friends. Working at Guardian has provided me with so many blessings!
Why Did You Choose Guardian?
Guardian and the wonderful people who own it found me!
Why a Property Manager Position?
I have many duties as property manager. It involves sales, accounting, customer service, and maintenance, just to name a few. I get to use the people skills I developed when I worked in retail and as a dance instructor. I enjoy meeting new people, both customers and other Guardian employees. Many people are facing difficult times. I like to think I can help them in some small way.
What Are Your Daily Duties?
Every day is different. I can help a client find the right type of storage for valuable keepsakes or storage for their personal possessions when they are in the process of moving. I can help with special storage requests as well. Decluttering your home? Need to store a motorcycle or boat? I can help with all of those storage needs.
What Do You Like Most About the Job?
The flexibility of all our storage options. I also enjoy getting to know people. I like the fact that I get to train my team so they know how to help each customer and provide them with the personalized service they need. I would like to think that the connections we make with our customers are long-lasting and based on kindness and respect.
Who Are You When You Are Not at Guardian Self Storage?
When I’m not working at Guardian Self Storage, I am spending time with my best friend Hudson. He is a Shetland Sheepdog and my constant companion. When it comes to hobbies, I am a decorating enthusiast. I rearrange my furniture regularly and love to add new décor. I enjoy hosting themed parties and enjoy spending time with my friends.
