To all my clients and friends:
I am happy to announce my retirement as of March 31, 2020 after almost 35 years with Conklin Bros of Santa Rosa.
I’ve been so fortunate to work for such a great company and so many great clients throughout my time here. Many of you have become lifelong friends and I am grateful for all of my interactions with clients, reps, drivers, order desk people and especially our staff at Conklin Bros.
I won’t miss my alarm clock at all. I hope to spend more time with my 2 grandsons, Santi and Nico, my children, Domenica, Nicholas and Alicia. I plan on fishing with my dad and brother when I am not traveling or working in my garden. My husband Don, has plans to get me into his racecar. Sounds like fun to me.
I will miss all of you and plan to keep in touch the best I can.
Best to you all,
Vice President/General Manager
