Career: I have been an entrepreneur since a teenager, first cleaning restaurant kitchens then moving 'West Young Man' and building a commercial carpet cleaning company. I moved into sales with Universal Roofing in 1992 until they closed. I spent the next 7 years with Scott Roofing. In 2001 I was recruited to help build Lyons Roofing. After 4 years revenues increased over 400% at which time my wife and I purchased the company in March of 2005.
Personal Background: I was born and raised in Miami Beach, but spent much of my early years with my family in Barranquilla, Colombia. I came to Arizona in 1976. I have 1 sister and brother-in-law in Florida, and I have 3 grown children. My wife is my partner in life and crime!
Likes/Dislikes: I love deep sea fishing, cooking and eating it! I am the grilled fish master.
Career: Varied and diverse. I waited tables well into my 20's and loved it. I began my career with Sprint when they were still owned by Southern Pacific Railroad and had about 700 employees total! I spent the next 13 years in the telecommunications industry in sales. I went back to school and pursued my degree in Organizational Communications with a minor in Spanish from ASU West graduating in 2000. I spent 5 years in software training and loved it until buying a roofing company!
Personal Background:I was born and raised in NY and don't think I talk funny! I have 2 sisters back east. I moved to AZ in 1978, met the love of my life in '88, and forfeited half my brain cells to my son in '94. (At least I knew where they went!)
Likes/Dislikes: I love animals, especially my doggies, quiet time at home, my garden, meditation and my friends. I am passionate about life and education, common sense, morals and values. I dislike lack of responsibility, anchovies, bad drivers and litterbugs!
Career: I have been in some form of sales or business development for 25+ years. I can't really be that old! I love Sales and Marketing, what other career choice allows you to dig in and learn such varied industries. I have peddled food products to chefs with US Foods, Candy to distributors for M&M/Mars, Clinical supplies to dentists for Smarthealth, Cosmetic Medical Devices to plastic surgeons for Medicis Pharmaceuticals and now Roofing Systems to the clients of Lyons Roofing. Truth is, the critical factors for success in all of these endeavors remain the same. Work hard for your clients, care about their needs, be honest and forthright, do what you say you are going to do and everything else comes easy. I am proud to work for Lyons Roofing as it is clear we share the same values.
Personal Background:Yo, I am from the Bronx. I was born and raised in New York City. 30+ years later…millions of people follow me everywhere I go. I love living here- although I have my heart set on a summer home in Canon Beach Oregon someday. I graduated from ASU with a degree in business management and marketing. Go Devils. My husband Jene and I have been married for 20+ years and have two great kids, Andrew and Jack. Andrew is a self-proclaimed techno geek. He works in the mobile technology industry and is a mobile device guru. Jack attends Horizon H.S. and when he can fit work around his demanding social calendar he is quite helpful on special projects here at Lyons Roofing.
Likes/Dislikes: In general I don't like negative people. I find them exhausting. I like my Prius despite the grief I get about it not being a “real car”, I especially like it when I pass those jokesters in the HOV lane. See ya! I like to cook, but not to clean. I wouldn't call myself an artist, but I do like to do crafty stuff. Our family shares a passion for the National Parks and camping/hiking. I like to read, especially since my son gave me a Kindle, for me it's all about the larger fonts (aging is wonderful). My all-time favorite thing: laughing to tears.
Career: I have worked in finance and Banking since 1974, I worked for Banks more than 25 years. My 1st job was at age 13. In 2000 I moved to Phoenix, and since that time I have worked for distribution and construction companies as Controller and Director of Finance. I like to analyze the big pictures of the companies, diagnose problems and help them to be more productive.
Personal Background: I am from Colombia. I moved to the US from Colombia in 2000 looking for a safe place to live. I started to study my MBA (Master Business Administration) and I graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2003. I have been married for more than 30 years. I love my family, I have two kids, Sandra and Nicolas, both studied Global Business.
Likes/Dislikes: I like hiking, I go to Piestewa Peak every weekend. I also liked running, I have run several half marathons. I love nature, animals, the rain forest, etc. I am a very simple and common person. I like to read and write, I like history, and I enjoy doing investigation about my ancestors. I don’t like dishonesty and unloyalty in people.
Career: My brother was a roofer in the 80’s in Prescott, AZ so needing a job- I started with him as a tear off laborer. Then I learned torch roofing and learned tile roofing. I worked with him for a few years on and off. Then started with another company for 11 years where I really learned the finer details of building a roof and customer service. I worked for about 5 years in the framing business which further enhanced my understanding of the building envelope. Over the subsequent years I worked with and owned my own roofing businesses. In the late 2008 economy dictated I get a real job, and went to work with a local solar company building their roofing division. The reason I came to Lyons was because I believe with the processes Lyons have in place and Lyons’ emphasis on the customer as a primary factor in the roofing experience is aligned with my beliefs as well.
Personal: I was born and raised in Prescott and Phoenix Arizona where I have lived all my life. I have one daughter, Ashley, who is currently attending Bloomington Indiana University studying museum arts and sciences. Likes: I enjoy time off (who doesn’t), meeting with customers (I like their stories), talking about roofs, all outdoor activities (quads, lakes) and donuts. Dislikes: Dishonest people, lying, cheaters and poorly installed roof systems (really, this bugs me)
Career: I have been in the roofing business for over 20 years, both residential and commercial.
Personal Background:I was born in Denver, CO and am a big Denver Broncos fan. I have 5 siblings who all live in Denver. I have eight nieces and nephews and one stepson and my pride and joy grandson, who lives here in Arizona.
Likes/Dislikes: I like football, golf, reading, Mexican food and margaritas. My favorite TV shows are 24, The Mentalist, Grey's Anatomy and yes, The Voice. I dislike seafood, (zits and cold sores ha ha) and grouchy people.
Career: Coming from over 4 years in the restaurant industry, I am relatively new to roofing. With a bloodline of contractors and engineers in my family, stepping into the construction side of things was a natural progression for me. I had a steady job before I could even drive and kept that up all throughout school. I was awarded a full-ride scholarship for engineering to any of the state colleges here in Arizona and did very well for my first year. After that year I decided to quit my schooling and go straight into the professional field. I hit the ground running and haven’t looked back since. Lyons has trained me from the ground up, under the best in the industry, to be part of the new generation of roofers.
Personal Background: As an avid outdoorsman I try to do it all. Mountaineering, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountain biking, paintball, dirt biking, the list keeps going. I have a pretty well-rounded background of technical outdoor sports that benefit me professionally as well. When I’m in the city, I like to stay on my motorcycle (The other guys here at Lyons are Harley guys so I’m that guy on the sport bike). The LaNue’s have been like a second family to me since I was in fifth grade and I could not be more excited to be working for them.
Career: Customers are smart. They don’t really need me to "sell" them anything… but they need me to "tell" them about the various products and services about which they are inquiring. I love helping smart consumers learn about what we offer and providing the information needed to make the right decision. It is very gratifying to help someone understand the value and importance of investing in their own safety and security.
Personal Background:Born and raised a Philly girl- Go E-A-G-L-E-S! Being a C.S.S (Catholic School Survivor), I invoke St. Anthony on a daily basis to help find my keys, cell phone, sanity, etc. I have been in Arizona since 1992 and am still looking for a decent soft pretzel and hoagie… I guess St. Anthony is not the patron saint of Philadelphia food cravings!
Likes/Dislikes: the desecration of the English language… its new-clee-ar, not nuke-you-lar! Likes: just about everything else- could live every single day eating pizza and would love to go RV-ing across the U.S. with my husband when we kick the kids out at 18 to go to college.
Family: I have been blessed to be married to my husband Steve, for over 15 years and we have 3 awesome children; Danielle, Henry and Eleanor. Nala the sweet boxer; Moomoo the evil cat and 24 disgusting fish round out our food chain. My mom also lives with us and she always says that the only reason she had children was to get some grandchildren… whom she adores. She adores us… we adore her.
Career: I started working with United Coatings in 1974 and relocated from Spokane, WA in 1986. I stayed with United Coatings through 2002. Wow!! 28 years! I got the urge to do something different and went to work for a roof consulting firm to “learn the trade”. I have been estimating for a roofing contractor here locally for the last 6 years.
Personal Background: I was born and raised in Spokane, WA. I still have a brother and sister there and another sister in Wichita, KS. I absolutely love living here in Arizona. I have been married for 30 years to my wife Mary. We have two beautiful daughters, Casey and Trista, whom have both graduated college with Master’s degrees and are off our payroll!! Very proud papa!! I love golf, skiing, traveling and of course working for Lyons Roofing!! Oh, and I dislike politics!!
Career: My 1st job was running paper routes since I was 12 years old; I did this for 3 years until I was old enough to work in fast food. Yes, I was bouncing paper off of cars (not on purpose, but I am sorry folks). Believe it or not it taught me a lot about customer service and general business practices. We had to manage our cash flow, perform collections, establish inventory- create routes. It was a great 1st job. My most interesting job, believe it or not, was working as a route manager with Breyers ice cream-my route included everything from pre-schools to strip bars. It is crazy the places that need ice cream. I have been in roofing since 1992 both new construction and re-roofing doing everything from tearing off roofs to my current role as the General Production manager. I have been at Lyons since 2011, in a variety of roles- I like it here because of the diversity of people I work with and for. My philosophy: Do the right thing!
Personal: I was born and raised in Glendale, AZ. I graduated from Moon Valley HS, go rockets! I went to PVCC for EMT certification but never got the opportunity to work this full time due to hiring constraints. I have been married to Jodi since 1996 and believe it or not- I have 5 children; Margaret, Abigale, Tommy, Charles and Chelsea. These kids keep us busy. They are all doing sports now- so pray for me. Likes: I like running, anything outdoors- camping, repelling and the like. Dislikes: laundry and cooking are my self-declared weaknesses although my family would second that vote.
Career: I started earning a paycheck washing dishes at Smitty’s Restaurant as a 15 year old. Working my way up as a prep cook and finally a line cook. I joined the military as a 19 year old. No combat, I had it easy as a helicopter mechanic. Then I worked as a delivery driver for a few years after the military. Then I got into roofing as a tile roofing apprentice. My foreman was very good and taught me well. In less than 2 years I was running my own crew as a foreman. After 7 years as an installer I became a service technician. I figure I have fixed about 4,000 leaks personally! After about 7 years as a tech. I became a supervisor and I ran roofing projects for about 6 years. Now I am an project specialist/estimator and I love it!
Personal Background:I lived in the Seattle area as a small child. At age 6 in 1969 we moved to Phoenix. I went to Moon Valley and Greenway High Schools graduating from the latter in 1981. I joined the military at age 19 and saw some of the world. When I got out it took me 5 years to find the love of my life. We got married and I now have 3 adult children. Likes; Sports, kayaking, movies(especially old classics), animals, nature, cars and card games!
I started my career in construction back in 1984. I was hired by a construction company in a little town in Oklahoma. My first job was during my college years and my first assignment was loading roofing materials onto roof's and tearing off roofing material. I was quickly taught how to install shingles and how to do them right. I worked the roofing division for 4 years until moving to Arizona in 1988. I continued my education and took a job in roofing with a national company. In the last 30+ years, I have run crews, supervised a roofing crew and moved into managing a roofing company in Arizona. I have been certified as a master shingle installer, certified by the national tile institute and have been trained on all forms of low slope roofing from sbs modified to hot mop roofing, metal roofing and foam roofing.
Personal Background: I'm a fun loving family man married to a wonderful wife, 4 kids and 1 grand child. We,as a family, enjoy life to the fullest. From back yard bbq's to camping trips, traveling the world to enjoying the Arizona desert in all of its glory.
Likes/Dislikes: Taking my side by side to the hard to get to areas to watching a gun fight in tombstone Arizona. Playing music in a band and singing songs by a campfire is one of many of the things we enjoy about life. My roofing career has been long and joyful, 33 years of helping good people has been a joy in my life.
I started working not even a month after I turned 14, washing dishes at a pizza joint in upstate NY. I soon after moved up to a prep cook when I was 16 but shortly after I decided I really wanted to get into building and construction. I started in construction when I was still 16, pouring concrete foundations as a summer job in Sleepy Hollow, NY. From masonry I moved to the roof, as a chimney mason for 4 years with Northeastern Masonry and Chimney. Shortly after this I was offered a job in Hunter, NY as a Custom home builder for James Jaeger Builders, we did complete home remodels from rough and finish carpentry to roofing. I learned almost every facet of the construction trade. I decided to move out west, and I worked for a company called Roof Life Management that specialized in leak sourcing and remediation. Building and construction is a lifestyle and passion for me, not just a career choice
Personal Background: I was born in Rhinebeck, NY and was raised in Kingston, NY. My mother was in insurance and my father owned a car dealership.We moved further north to the beautiful Catskills in 1999, I grew up playing baseball, soccer, skateboarding and snowboarding.
Likes/Dislikes: I love Architecture and being outside, whether its camping or a day hike!
Career: My 1st job was at age 13 when I worked for Parks & Recreation maintaining hiking trails. I have since worked in many different facets of the roofing industry until finally owning my own roofing company, Ranney Day Roofing. I owned operated that company for 14 years until I finally ran away. My business philosophy: Keep it simple
Personal: No children + No wife = a very happy man. I am a man in love however; I am in love with my Harley. I ride a lot. I used to golf a lot and that chapter remains open, golf obsession pending. Likes: anything fast; boats, cars, yeah you get the rest. Dislikes: wasting time and politics
Career: I grew up in roofing. My family owned a roofing company and I grew up spending summers in the office and on the roof. I worked there in a variety of capacities; service department coordinator, scheduler, roof sales, filing, sweeping, you name it. The worst job I ever had was as a telemarketer- I hated interrupting people’s lives selling things they don’t need or want. What I have learned from my family business and life is that in business the customer is key. I always strive to provide the best customer experience. Oh, and quite simply- Be nice!
Personal: My number one personal favorite thing in life is my three boys. Yes, it is my three sons. I LOVE to get my hands dirty. Give me some soil and a pot and I am happy. (I am trying really hard to inspire an urban farm right here at Lyons Roofing). I love farmers markets, camping, antiques, upcycling, and quality time with my lifelong girlfriends. Dislikes: I dislike traffic, smog and politics both in the office and in the world.
Career: Coming Soon!
Personal Background: Coming Soon!
Likes/Dislikes: Coming Soon!
Career: I have been in many different trades throughout the years, but I came to realize a few years back that everything I was doing involved customer service. I knew then that I would only be happy if I was doing the right thing by the customer. I am happy to be with a company that consistently shows they have the same values. It is hot on the roof and it takes a special breed to get up there every day, but I am proud to be a roofer and to be working at Lyons Roofing “The King of the Rooftops”.
Personal Background:I was born here in Phoenix and have lived here for over 30 years. I love the valley and the people here and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. My wife, Monica, and I have been together for almost 12 years and have an awesome 10 year old son, J.J. I like to relax with my family when I am done for the day on the roofs, and watch movies or hang out by the pool together.
Likes/Dislikes: I like animals. I have 4 dogs and 2 cats. I would say I’m a dog person but I still think my cats are cool. I love football season, and October baseball. As far as dislikes go, I don’t have too many. I don’t like dishonesty, marshmallows, or raisins, in that order. Strange but true.
Career: My young career started at Bed Bath, beyond at 16 years old selling blenders and vacuums. You would be surprised how much you have to learn for a 16 year old to be effective selling small appliances to adults. Lots of training and people skills. I also worked for dad who owns own audio/video Company selling components to resorts- I did the configuration plans for that. After some time I became his warehouse manager. I learned from my father the presentations skills needed to facilitate business to business relationships. I came to work at Lyons as a friend of the owner’s son. As a previous warehouse manager I applied for facility manager- since then I have been able to advance my skills and certifications ultimately preparing me for the safety director role. I like interacting with the employees and assuring they go home safe. I have picked up Spanish and best of all I can bring my dog Nikki to work.
Personal: I was born in Kansas and then my family moved to AZ when I was 4 years old. I consider myself a native Arizonan. I love the mountains, and all things outdoors. I love to camp, hunt, kayak, rock climbing, really most anything outdoors. I am recently engaged to my high school sweetheart. Likes: Did I mention I like anything outdoors? Also, cooking and working with my hands. Dislikes: I hate laundry, Arizona traffic and politics.
Career: My first job was working at the batting cages at age 12. I loved that job, it helped me meet girls and I learned how to smoke. (Both of which I still enjoy) My most interesting job was when I spent 2+ years building the roof of a new international airport in Mumbai, India. It was a great experience dealing with different cultures. I love what I do for a living because it’s always different, I get to work outside, and I enjoy meeting new people. I love working at Lyons Roofing because Ann Pepper is extremely awesome.
Personal: I am originally from Illinois. I grew up with 2 brothers and a sister who all still live back in the Midwest. I have a young adult daughter, Tessa Marie, going to college for cosmetology. 3 step sons, Tony, Jimmy and Brian who a really good kids. Likes: Watching NFL football- go Bears! (Drinking Miller Lite, duh!) And believe it or not I like to work-(see above). Dislikes: I don’t like ignorant people- get with the program!
Career: My career began at Burger King for 2 weeks until they found out I was underage. My next job was my worst job- I was low man on the totem pole doing framing work. It was more like getting paid to be hazed. My most interesting job was doing roof work on a skyscraper in Topsail Beach, NC. I have built it all, Tile, Shingle, hot, metal, single ply, you name it, and I have built it. I like it here at Lyons mostly because of the employees. This is a good group of people. My philosophy: Do it right!
Personal: I am the proud father of 4 children: Johnny, Joshua, Amber and Sophia. We do a lot together as a family. The family that kayaks together…We enjoy vacationing, camping, fishing, exploring. Likes: I like when people take pride in their work. Dislikes: I don’t care for complainers.
Professional: Everything I needed to know about business I learned as a paperboy. At 13 years old and all of 110 pounds I woke up at 4:30 each Sunday morning to load up my cruiser bicycle w 250 pounds of Sunday papers and with pride precisely delivered 176 papers. For 3 plus years this job taught me that my income was directly related to the degree of my customers satisfaction. I also learned how to interact with my customers face to face and address their needs in order to collect my fees. This taught me to not shy away from customer communication. Oh, and Christmas tips were the best!! Once in High School, my best bud’s family owned a roofing company and so after school and summers were spent in Camp Roofing laying the ground work for my career in roofing. A career I have enjoyed and led me to Lyons Roofing- an organization I am proud to call my work home.
Personal: I am happily married with 3 adult children, two boys and a daughter. Thank goodness for having a girl with a sense of adventure or I would not have had anyone to share my passion for all things outdoors. Despite always having had an RV with AC, she was the one outside in the tent. The boys needed climate control and electricity for their gaming fun. Today I enjoy my down time with our granddaughter who is pure joy for us. Oh, I also have a deer headed Chihuahua fur child named Emma. Likes: I like good food and beer (who doesn’t?). I have a love of music, in fact I recently picked back up the guitar and keyboards after 25 plus years and am having fun re-tuning those skills. Perhaps I still have time to be that country rock star. Dislikes: I dislike being lied to. I am a big believer in the golden rule. This one is for my wife- I do not like the ballet or going out for high tea, this is not likely to change any time soon.
Professional: I had a strong desire to start earning money very early in life- so I had to start my own lawn mowing company when I was 9 years old. $5 Bucks for front and another $5 Bucks for the back yard. Hey I was running 20 lawns a week, that’s big money for a 9 year old. During that time, my biggest take away was to invest in good equipment. I remember going down to the True Value hardware and purchased the top of the line mower. I was even an early adopter of new technology- a weed eater. Talk about building a better mousetrap. The summer before HS I started working in a local Italian pizza restaurant. I started as a busboy/dishwasher and by my senior year I was the head cook. Lots of “firsts” working there- first cocktail, first girlfriend, first… Enough said. I have been in roofing for some time now- in fact I was working here at Lyons Roofing the first time around before the La Nue’s owned the company- so 15 plus years ago. I have worked for most of the major players and am happy to be back home at Lyons Roofing as the foam division manager.
Personal: I am married to my high school sweetheart. Well, I got it right eventually. I should say I am now happily married to my HS sweetheart for 3 years now. I guess it was meant to be. We have two adult daughters and a nephew I love as a son. I have 5 grandchildren, 3 girls and 2 boys, that I try to spend as much time as possible with. I also have two fur kids- a Charcoal Lab and an Australian Sheppard. I spent 25 plus years as a soccer coach and referee and have a great love of this sport. I am also very involved with the Desert Caballeros charity work and participate in their longest horse ride in the US each year. Likes: anything to do with the outdoors. I am an avid hunter, fisher, gatherer. Dislikes: Arrogance. Also, please get to the point with minimal BS please.
Career: I started working at 13 in the tobacco fields. After graduating from high school I traveled Europe doing whatever jobs I could find i.e, chambermaid, nanny, dishwasher, and finally ended up working in the typing pool (on a manual typewriter no less), at the European Exchange Service in Nuremburg, Germany. Once I decided to settle down, and come back home, I got introduced to Customer Service and have been involved, in one way or another, in Customer Service – the mainstay of any company - for over 50 years. Working for Lyons Roofing, I have found that this is a company that truly embodies the adage that the “customer comes first”.
Career: The first job where I developed my accounting skills was for a mom and pop machine shop that made aerospace parts. Mom quit soon after I started and Pop and their accountant took me under their wings. In a short amount of time I became the office manager. Pop soon retired due to health issues and after several months I helped Pop junior take over the run of the business. Working at Lyons Roofing reminds me of that mom and pop shop I started in, the work is rewarding and my co-workers are the BOMB!
Personal: I am a native Arizonian, spending much of my time in Mesa. I grew up with one younger brother and about 9 years ago I discovered I have 1 older brother and 3 younger sisters. Life is interesting that way. Five years ago, I married my first crush from junior high on Laie Beach in Hawaii. I have 3 grown children and my husband has three grown children himself. Together we are proud grandparents to four wonderful boys and 1 precious little girl. I also parent 3 dogs (Ariel, Lucy and Stitch) and 4 kitties (Jasmine, Tigger, Roo and Fred). I enjoy gardening, swimming, snorkeling (my fave), photography, scrapbooking, off roading, Disneyland (see pet names), skydiving and hope someday to swim with the sharks.
Likes/Dislikes: Aerosmith!! I am a self-proclaimed groupie. I have seen them…well…a lot! (more than 24- less than 26). Yes, I have met the band a few times- but I have also made several lifelong friends along the way. Oh, I love Hawaii! Did I mention how much I love snorkeling.
Career: I started working at 5 years old at my grandparents country store in Kingston NY (really just stealing the yoohoo’s out of the frig). I have had a passion for animals and the care of animals since I was young. I wanted to be a veterinarian but once I realized I had to deal with the sad parts I couldn’t do it, instead I rescue and foster and have my PET CPR & First Aid Cert. I have been a licensed cosmetologist for over 35 years with 4 state licenses. When I decided to open my own salon in New York it was time to finish school to keep an eye on my business financials. I have worked for large corporations as an Accounting Manager, Supervisor and Jr. Accountant down to the smallest start-ups. I love working for a variety of businesses and learning about each industry. Since being with Lyons Roofing I can honestly say they care about the employees as much as the customers. This is a wonderful family environment that I feel comfortable in.
Personal: I come from New York born and raised, no I don’t say “Lnnng Iland” and I don’t tawk funny…. I moved to AZ about 12 years ago to care for my parents who were facing some challenging health issues. My Dad has since passed and I miss him every day. I am so glad I packed it in and was blessed with the time I had with him since moving to Tucson. Family is everything.
Likes/Dislikes: I love animals and find joy in saving and enhancing the life of these defenseless souls. The man/other half would rather I didn’t save everything under the sun including plants (ha-ha !! I feel sad for them, when someone doesn’t water them). We love to travel to places that we have seen on Diners, Drive ins and Dive’s and see for ourselves how great the food is. We enjoy the grandkids and zip lining. Oh and I love my job, did I say that already? ;-)
Career: I worked for Doane, and Agricultural Research company for 9 years before they relocated up North. I was the Accounts Manager for Arizona, Washington, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and North Carolina. I love working with farmers and their cattle, swine and crops.
Personal: I have lived in Arizona since 2003. My husband and kiddos are my sanity and irritation in life! 😊 My family and I love to throw BBQ’s with friends and family. My dogs, Bolt (10 year old ridgeback mix), Sansa (2 year old German Shepard) and CJ (Cleveland Jr. 1 year old Rotti) are my angels.
Likes/Dislikes: I enjoy anything that involves water, family and friends. Things I am not fond of…people that belittle others to make themselves feel better, anyone that is unkind and incapable of uplifting others, SKEETERS (Mosquitos 😊) and animal cruelty!!
Career: Where to start with my professional experience? As a kid (10 years old) have been exposed to the landscaping side of the family business, and have throughout gone back through breaks to work with my father when needed. Have some nursing background, as a CNA for about 4 years, which I was burnt out from. Although I love helping others out when in need, the brutal hours and tugs at my heart when a patient would move on became a tough position to go back to. My remaining professional experience is in Customer Service, Call Center Management which totals out 10 years. I live customer service and feel it’s a necessity in any workplace is the key to success!
Personal: I am a single parent of 2 wonderful children Alexis and Elijah. Although it has not been easy raising 2 kids on my own; I consider myself truly blessed to be able to show my kids how resilient a person can be. There is no greater job than the one of being a parent, well secondary would be “ME” Director of First Impressions for Lyons Roofing. I am Bilingual in English/Spanish, which provides me the ability to serve another market. Although I know 2 languages; roofing is my favorite language and it is a language of its own. I have about 15 years of experience in the customer service field, and 5 years in nursing. One of my favorite hobbies is antiquing; I often find many unique items (at rock bottom prices). However, my ultimate fixation would have to be fashion; I love everything about it and am often carrying the latest style handbag, shoes and accessories (which I find at great prices too). My favorite quote is by Coco Chanel: “A girl should be two things: Classy and fabulous!” I don’t do fashion, I am fashion!
Bio: My first job was as a receptionist in a beauty salon, think Steel Magnolias. My most interesting job was when I worked at the Catholic Dioceses of Tucson, I worked on the Bishops Appeal and the Catholic Tuition for schools campaign’s, It was interesting to me how much money people would donate and they would also send in their letters and share their opinions on current things that were going on at the time with the Church. My worst job was when I worked for 2 days trying to sell warranties for people’s appliance over the phone. The funniest job was working in a plumbing office- the things they found in pipes. My professional philosophy: Putting myself into the customer’s shoes. I love working at Lyons because everyone is genuine.
Personal: I am happily married to my husband, John. We have a tribe of children: Romelo, Sabian, Deangelo, Andrew and 5 stepchildren, but I have too few characters left to name them all. My family and my children are my favorite thing to do. With them I share morals and values that are not seen enough in the world today. Faith is important to us all. Likes: I most enjoy time with family, traveling, especially the beach, I like to cook, and helping others. Dislikes: Mean people, closed minded people and crazy drivers.
As in any company, employees come and go.
