1.Tell us a little about you! What are your hobbies, what do you like to do on your weekends/time off, etc?
I enjoy doing anything outdoors! Whether it be hiking or going to a Cardinals game or even just exploring St. Louis I can always have a good time. I also spend a lot of my free time coaching Gymnastics at Barrons where I work part time.
2. Give us some of your favorites! Examples: Food, ice cream, movies, music artist, sport, activity, etc.
When it comes to food, I love EVERYTHING. Going to new restaurants or trying a new recipe at home is always a fun adventure. Unfortunately, even though I love ice cream, I’m lactose intolerant, so I tend to stick to sherbets and sno-cones. When it comes to movies you always have to stick with the classics, a go to is always The Breakfast Club! My all-time favorite is Cardinals baseball! My summer revolves around baseball and I could never get tired of it!
3. When did you start with AJ?
Officially I started working at AJ Adhesives on February 11, 2015.
4. What’s your favorite thing about working at AJ?
My coworkers are always willing to help and of course a great time to be around. Also, learning the business aspect and how the company works is very interesting and there is always something new to learn!
5. What does our IHC service & philosophy mean to you?
To me it means that our customers come first. And that it is our job to do whatever we can to make them insanely happy. 😉 As the distributor we have the power to control how efficient it is for our customers to order their products.
6. If you were stranded on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you?
Endless drinking water, an Ipod with all of my favorite music and all the tools I would need to build an awesome hut, because once I get on the island… I’m never coming back!

It’s so easy to get sucked into the winter blahs this time of year. The holidays are officially over and it’s nothing but dark and cold outside. We can help you to shake off those blues with these tips:
Declutter! Starting your day with a clean space can help you to be more productive and creative. Take advantage of the time spent indoors and clean your desk, office, purge old files, etc. Why stop there? Go ahead and make the rest of your life just as productive and clean your fridge, organize your closets and more. This is a great way to keep yourself organized and ready to start the year off right.
Adding color to your day will brighten your mood and get the creative juices flowing! Why not add a colorful scarf or tie to your attire?
Give your office or room at home a bright new look!
Adding pops of color can really lighten the mood on those cold, dark days! You can easily do this with small office decor or add some flowers in a vase!
Bundle up and get outside for some exercise, especially on sunny days! Sunlight is a natural mood-enhancer and exercise stimulates and warms the body.
With freeze season here it’s important to know how to protect your liquid products. This winter please be sure your receiving department knows to do the following before signing the carrier’s delivery receipt.
When a liquid adhesive arrives, open the container and examine the contents for the following conditions:
- Check to see if the adhesive temperature has gone below 32°F or 0°C
- Does the product look coagulated resembling cottage cheese
- Is there water separation in the product
- Is the product hard and frozen
*If freeze indicator was used you must still check the product as mentioned above.
If you discover any of these conditions and the Bill Of Lading is marked “Protect From Freezing” reject the shipment and state your exception in writing on the delivery receipt. If you choose to receive the shipment, you assume responsibility for the condition of the freight received. If you discover a problem after the carrier has left, call the carrier and request an immediate inspection. For other questions, call your AJ Adhesives Customer Service Representative at 314.652.4583.
Keep In Mind:
- Place purchase orders early in the week so the product is not in transit over the weekend
- Be sure to always keep liquid adhesives in storage areas at or above 55°F and away from open doors, cold areas, or any areas exposed to cold conditions
- Please be sure to inspect all liquid adhesive products upon delivery in the presence of the carrier’s driver to ensure there is no evidence of frozen product. If this is not done, and the receiver accepts the goods, it is assumed the goods are not frozen at the time of delivery and it becomes the responsibility of the consignee
- Order truckload quantities when possible to receive additional heat protection
- Transit times may vary due to unpredictable weather/road conditions; encourage customers to buffer transit to ensure timely delivery
