Warehouse Manager

I am a passionate team player and co-worker. I've been working with SD Janitor since almost the beginning of the company and everyone are like family to me. Helping my team grow and succeed is what makes me happy the most. I take care all the operations at our warehouse location and I'm a pro in inventory management. When I am not at work, my family and my granddaughter are my greatest passion and it is with them that I like to spend my spare time. A few times a year, I like to go out to dance some good samba music as well.

Helping business financial health is my work and my passion. I'm a controller working with my company for almost a decade. Seeing the grown and development of this company success gives me a great sense of accomplishment as I understand how important my role is. My job at SD Janitor is to guarantee the books run smoothly by taking care of bookkeeping, forecasting, budging, AR, AP and payroll. Normally accounting people have a reputation of being boring, but my team and co-workers know that I am all about being happy, be kind and getting the work done.
