Why did you want to become a Riveter?
When we moved to our current duty station I had trouble finding a job. I knew about R.Riveter and really liked their mission. I wanted to become a Riveter so that I could be a part of an awesome company and find a job that I can take with me when we move.

What is one of your favorite things about being a Riveter?
My favorite thing about being a Riveter is the flexibility. Army life can be crazy and it's great to work for a company that understands that.

How has R.Riveter impacted your life?
I became a stay-at-home mom when I had my son. I love staying home with him and I like that I have the opportunity to work from home to make some extra income. 

What does it mean to you to wear many hats - military spouse, maker, parent (to humans or animals), etc.
I'm lucky I get to wear many hats as a mom, wife, and Riveter. It is important to have a good balance between all of them.

Tell us about a typical "day in the work-life."
I have a six-month-old, so I work on liners either during nap time or after he goes to bed.

What's on your "work jams" playlist?
I like to listen to podcasts while I work. My favorite is "Stuff You Should Know," and recently I've been listening to true crime podcasts.
