  • Two-Plus Decades

    When you’re well established in your profession and start a new job in a new industry, it can be challenging for anyone; perhaps even more so when a woman starts a new career in a predominantly male industry. Imagine what it was like for a 25-year-old woman with just a couple years of professional experience,…

  • Simply the Best

    If your 2022 has been anything like mine, you’re probably wondering where five months have gone—and wow, did they zoom past me. It’s been a busy year so far, and I’m excited for a lot that’s ahead including the chance to once again recognize some impressive glass architecture. Glass and glazing products are an important…

  • What’s Next in ’22

    Business is booming. That’s probably what you’ll hear if you talk to most any contract glazier about their work these days. That is also evident in the February 2022 issue of USGlass magazine, which includes our annual ranking of the top contract glaziers. And in case you missed it, you can also read about that…

  • Good Things in Store

    Welcome to my first blog of 2021. We’re only about four weeks into the New Year, and things have already been busy. I’m not here to re-hash what happened or didn’t happen, where we’ve been or where we’re going … though I will admit I had a few laughs over the Bernie mitten memes last…

  • Planning Ahead

    We’re nearing the end of 2020—and for most of us, we’ll be glad to see it go, as we look forward to the good that 2021 (hopefully) will bring. And let me add, I hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a safe and festive holiday season ahead.…

  • Say That Again. And Again, and Again

    Today should be “Medal Monday” for me. I should have run a half marathon last weekend, but, like most everything else in the world these days, the in-person event was canceled. Instead, the options were to either run a virtual race or defer to next year’s live event. I chose to defer to 2021. I’ve…

  • Virtual Reality

    September 2020 looks different compared to years past. For many of us, September is a month of travel—to Las Vegas or Atlanta. No one, most likely, is going to either of those cities in September, at least not for a trade show. For many of us, this time of year is synonymous with travel, re-connecting…

  • Staying Connected

    Four months ago if you asked me what I would be working on the last week of July I’d say something like preparing for the upcoming in-person show issues, booking flights to Las Vegas and Dusseldorf, and catching up after a week of vacation. Only the latter is 100% accurate. And while I’m not booking…

  • Better than Normal

    Lately, I find myself saying things like “when everything gets back to normal …” and I have to stop and pause. Sure, normal is fine. But what if we could be better than normal? While we’re all struggling in our own way with the impact the coronavirus is having, I’ve seen a lot of good…

  • Twenty Years, 240 Magazines, Thousands and Thousands of Pages

    “Most recent graduates don’t spend more than a couple years at a job.” That’s what my college communication professor said during my senior year. Basically, he explained, recent graduates get a job, try it on, gain some experience and move on. Does anyone truly expect their first place of employment to also be their last?…
