Retta was born and raised in South Carolina. In her varied career, she has held roles in sales, management, marketing and operations at AT&T, Lucent Technologies, Warner Bros. Entertainment, and several insurance companies. She spent 3 years running her own company, Training2BeSafe Inc., where she was a professional speaker and trainer, presenting safety/personal protection programs to 130+ women's professional, business, college and civic groups. Retta graduated from University of South Carolina after studying Business Management and Marketing. Retta was drawn to the vision and passion of the management team and the importance of the work that TA does. She was prepared to utilize and apply her varied skills from years of corporate experience. Whatever the task, large or small, Retta always puts forth her best effort. She has an intense desire to exceed customer expectations, and to provide the best service possible as a representative of TA. Her personal work strategy is to leverage the resources available to accomplish big goals. Once a big goal is achieved, Retta sets a bigger goal! Every day she strives to keep a positive, grateful and productive attitude. For the past 9 years, Retta has served as the key point of contact for several of TA's major accounts. She also represents TA as the field marketing representative throughout a 6-state territory. In her role, she develops, builds and grows relationships at both an adjuster and carrier level. Retta brings an extensive background in account and customer relationship management, business development, communications and sales operations experience to TA. Retta’s dream for TA is to consistently out perform all temporary housing industry alternatives, to remain highly regarded by everyone we serve, and to maintain our small-company vision of personalized customer care. We plan to achieve these goals by enhancing partnerships with both new and existing clients, building alliances and uncovering unique sources of opportunity. The compassion and comfort clients receive from our insurance housing services are unparalleled in the temporary relocation industry.
I Believe In:
the ideas that: What you are will show in what you do (T. Edison), and that how you do one thing is how you do everything. We create our thoughts and our thoughts create our life. Thoughts become things – choose good ones.
I am Inspired By:
Strong values, integrity, honesty, kindness, and patriotism. My father – part of our Greatest Generation, whose humility, honor and work ethic taught me the value of doing it right the first time: measure twice and cut once. And if no one but you sees it, that’s enough.
When I am not Working:
Time with friends and family, unwinding in nature, studying topics such as history, personal growth, health and nutrition.
