A: Be inquisitive and a dedicated learner. If you are willing to learn new things and work hard, build good relationships, and be collaborative with others, you will naturally advance within your department or be sought out by team members from other departments.
Q: What roles have you held at Harbor?
A: All my roles this far have been in Accounts Receivable working with our customers and also our sales team. I consider this to be such an honor and think of AR as much customer support as it is accounting.
Q: What do you think is the most important quality to have to get your career started at Harbor?
A: Integrity. Always do the right thing even when no one is watching. When you have integrity in who you are and in the job you do, it speaks volumes about you as a person. Others will always appreciate you being friendly and genuine, but you get noticed when you can speak up with honesty and integrity. I strive to help our customers in the best way possible, but primarily in the way that is best for Harbor, which means both parties have a successful outcome.
