New Employee Spotlight: Leslie Duncan

posted on in Virginia

 

What can you tell me about your background?
I have always been in sales, managing a vitamin and supplement store for the past 4 years. I use to work in the Pella service department 10 years ago when it was still at Station Road. I love working directly with customers and solving problems, as it is always a learning experience.

Are you originally from the Richmond area?
I am originally from Midlothian, Va. I lived in Hawaii with my husband who was in the military for 3 years, then moved to Florida for a year and now we are back here in Virginia. We moved back here after I found out I was pregnant last June to be closer to family and raise our baby here. 
 

What are some of your hobbies/Interest?
I love working out and running obstacle courses and races, especially if they are for a good cause! I love to hang out with my new baby who is 3 months old now. It has been such an amazing, rewarding, learning experience.
 

What made you want to work at Pella?
My dad is a sales person for Pella and has always praised how great the company has treated him. The product is top of the line so there is no hesitation on representing such a great standard of windows. Of course, my past experience with Pella was great and most of the people I use to work with are still here which says something about the value that Pella places on their employees.
 
 What do you consider your top 3 strengths at work?

One of my top 3 strengths would definitely include being outgoing. I am confident in speaking with others and enjoy meeting new people. I love to learn from others and enjoy the challenge of finding answers to questions I am unfamiliar with. This serves as a great learning experience for my future and the benefit of others.
