My Customer Commitment: I am committed to providing my customers with the best Stampin’ Up experience possible. Whether it is teaching techniques or providing information about the latest products or promotions, my customers are my number one priority. At the Stampin’ Schach, you are more than a customer…you are a friend!
My Stampin’ Family: I am blessed to be part of Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Mary’s direct upline is Lisa Pretto, of Inkbig Academy. Both of these women are Stampin’ Up! rock stars, having been named to Stampin’ Up!’s Advisory Board. I have learned my leadership skills from the best! My sideline is a talented group of stampers, as is my downline, The Schach Pack. We are a caring and supportive community, composed of hobby and career stampers. Plus, we provide a variety of resources designed to enhance your Stampin’ Up! experience.
Personal Background: I am a Midwestern gal through and through, born in Iowa and raised in Illinois. I am happily married to my supportive husband, Kim. Together we raised one son, Brady. Brady received his Masters in Trumpet Performance, and also earned his Jazz certificate. He resides in Seattle with Kia the Boxer.
Teaching is my passion. I was a high school science teacher for 34 years. Chemistry and Physics were my favorite subjects to teach. I served as a mentor to new teachers and presented sessions on authentic assessment across the state of Iowa.
I was introduced to the world of stamping in December, 2008, when I purchased my first stamp set at a tag sale. I became a demonstrator in February, 2009.
In addition to stamping, my hobbies include reading, walking, and showing Boxer dogs. I am currently “Mom” to AKC GCH Cimarron’s Do You Know the Muffin Man (Muffy), UKC CHCimarron’s What Were You Thinking (Brody), AKC GCH Burlwood’s Unlike Any Other (Lexi), GCH/Can CH Anscha-Happy Tail’s You Don’t Know Jack CGCA RN BN TDI (Jackie). Jackie is a certified therapy dog and loves his “work”.
Artistic Recognition: I have won numerous challenges, including Mojo Monday. I have served on several design teams, including Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen, Pals Paper Arts, Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players.
Stampin’ Up! Honors: During my time as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have earned two incentive trips, as well as the Achiever’s Bonus. In addition, I earned one of Stampin’ Up!’s greatest honors in 2014 and 2015…being named to Founder’s Circle. I also presented at Convention 2014 on the topic of Balancing Your Stampin’ Up! Business with Your Personal Life. I love my Stampin’ Up! life!
