Before we hired four Account Executives and four Sales Development Representative, the Aplos Sales Team all began with Michele Visser, our VP of Sales. She successfully “manned the fort” by herself before Aplos was able to hire the help she needed to make her department thrive the way it does today!

Watching the boys work hard for something they want and seeing them reap the fruits of their labor. I love doing simple little things like kneeling next to their bed at night and just talking with them about their day. I love snuggling with our little guy, it won’t be much longer till that will end. I love surprising them with a treat to reward them for something cool that they have done. I love watching them overcome their fears. There are so many joys of being a mom, it’s hard to just choose a few.
