Hi, I’m Marie. I’ve been with Artisan since 2006. My role has evolved throughout my years here. Starting out in Accounts Payable, I moved on to Billing, Change Orders, and Collections for many years. Since 2013, I’ve been assisting Nancy Czarkowski with sample submittals and approvals, Requisitions/Purchase Orders and LEED compliance. It seems like every day I learn something new about ceramic tile materials and installation.
My life outside of work is centered around our family, which has always been the most important aspect of my life. I’ve been happily married to my husband, Pete, for 36 years, and we’ve been very blessed with three wonderful children. Our oldest two children are now married and our youngest has recently moved out on her own, planning to be married later this year. So Pete and I have been getting used to being "empty-nesters", but since everyone lives close by, we’re still able to get together often for Sunday family dinners and holidays.
When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy my aerobics class, sewing projects, and spending time at the Jersey shore with a good book.
Being welcomed into the Artisan Family has been a great experience. There is a real sense of teamwork and cooperation here, unlike any other place I’ve worked in the past. I look forward to many more years working and growing at Artisan.
And he can fire everyone in the company,
from the chairman on down,
spending his money somewhere else.
