The end of an era. . . and the start of a new Adventure
So it's Official. I have a new job. After 12 years of working with Ventura products, I'm moving onto new challenges and adventures!
Many of you who may view this may not know me well. But those of you that do know me, you understand that this decision was not made lightly. I started with Ventura products in 1999 under Hoppe & Associates. Mr. Hoppe gave me a chance and to this day, he still credits me with keeping the product afloat in North America.
It has been an honor to be the customer service person for Ventura products and Avon Tyres. While it's been two years since I worked with Avon Tyres, they are as much apart of me as Ventura is. Working with both products, I've traveled around the USA, made lots of friends, and created tons of memories!! Come on, who remembers my crazy summer campaign of "Show us Your Rack"?? That was a good one! I still wanted one for Gryyp Products that say "Get Screwed!!" But no such luck as of yet.
So what's going to happen with me? I'm getting married next year and I want to live with my soon to be husband, and I'm not willing to commute to Lynnwood daily. So I've found a new job, and it's not in motorcycles. I won't say who my new employer is, just that it's in the medical field. I'm really excited for this new opportunity!
What's going to happen with Ventura MCA? Max and Jesse have been in "Amy Training" since late August. While they won't need to don the blonde wig and proclaim "I'm the Amy Now!", I'm fully confident that they will continue to provide the best in customer service, product support, and give awesome technical advice!!
I wanted to say Thank you to my friends and customers. It's you who have made me into the woman that I am today. My wonderful motorcycle family, I will always cherish our great memories. From IMS shows, to the races at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway to hanging out on the porch at Deals Gap to drinking wine at Rally Week in the Gorge and getting kicked off the docks in New York. We've had great fun!!
Thank you to everyone at Dold Industries, Avon Tyres, Kenma AU, Motohaus, Ventura MCA, IXIL, Sound Rider, Dave Preston, Advanstar, and so many other companies and friends I've made over the years!
Wish me luck on my next adventure!
Happy Trails, and remember my friends, keep the rubber side down!!
