Occupation: Accounting and payroll/human resources manager of Carter’s Ace Hardware.
Describe yourself: Empathetic, positive, and humble.
Desired superpower: It would be super speed because sometimes I feel there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
Guilty pleasure: Binge-watching reality television.
Favorite part of my job: The sense of fulfillment that I have every single day in knowing that I am growing our family business. I am lucky enough to be a part of this third-generation family business and being able to wake up every day knowing that I am a part in the growth of that provides immeasurable joy.
Philosophy of life: “you are the master of your own mindset. To piggyback off of that, I will quote Tony Robbins: ‘Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.’”
A leader I admire: My stepdad, Cadie Carter. He puts God first, next to his family, and that to me is the true meaning of a leader. His character, giving heart, and drive is exemplary bar none. I could only hope to be half of the business owner he is.
Pet peeve: When people complain about things that they have full capability to change. I will reference my philosophy of life in this one: “You are the master of your own mindset.” To be more specific, you create the life you want to live; if you don’t like something, change it!
