Back in 1997 Sue got her first taste of the apparel industry working for a uniform rental agency, first in customer service then on the production floor as a supervisor. Due to company relocation she moved on and found a home with a direct sale apparel company, which also customized. It was here that she found her calling and stayed with the company through relocation and buyouts doing customer service, sales, production and branch management until 2014. As time wore on and the business model shifted Sue thought about moving on, and another perfect opportunity fell into her lap at Star. This industry is full of ups and downs both with business flow and interpersonal relationships. It keeps her on her toes, keeps things interesting and has allowed her to meet and work with some of the best individuals, both customers and coworkers.
