June 8, 2023

“Cathy is an asset to our team and continues to propel our location forward with her organization skills, safety mindset and by performing her duties with extreme efficiency. She goes above and beyond to make sure all her team members have the tools they need to perform at their best. This includes on line training, providing supplies and handling important documents. Cathy proudly wears her PPE when on the production floor and assists those that may need help. She arrives to work with the best intentions and performs her duties with a smile on her face. We trust that she will always do what's best for our business, even when no one is watching over her shoulder. She's got her hands in just about every aspect of our location. She writes analyses and purchase orders for products, keeps the schedule for both interior and exterior production teams, manages the schedule for inbound vendor trucks, allocates pick tickets and helps our sales team to clean up BOM issues. Cathy exudes excellence! She's capable of mastering any job or task she's assigned. We at Fredericksburg Millwork are proud to have Cathy on our team. She is the embodiment of BFS!”

– Dennis DePriest, Operations Manager

In the market, she is a go-to for sales, operations and customers on any challenging millwork questions or situations. She is fully dedicated to providing options and solutions to all of her customers to see what will work for them. Cathy does not stop at her normal duties either. She also supports her local team with homemade biscuits and gravy from time to time which is always a crowd favorite. When you look at her career so far, and what she has given the industry, she deserves all the recognition. Cathy is a true BFS all-star!”
