Employee Spotlight: Sandra Lashway
Meet Sandra Lashway, the Clarke Showroom manager in Milford, MA who recently celebrated her 20 year anniversary with Clarke! Prior to becoming the showroom manager, Sandy worked at Clarke as a Showroom Consultant, assisting clients with her expertise on luxury appliances. She has always had a passion for working with food and she has spent time in New York and Massachusetts as a home economist and secondary school educator.
When asked about her favorite part about working for Clarke as the Showroom Manager, Sandy shares that her favorite part is feeling appreciated for all her work. For Sandy, it is a joy to come to work every day because she feels that every employee contributes to the success of the business. She is very proud to work for a company with such great success and a fantastic reputation.
Sandy explains that when customers come in to visit the showroom, they don’t always know what to expect, which allows her team to assist them with their needs. When the consultants work and talk with clients about their project, Clarke Showrooms offer them the opportunity to cook with the product in order to gain experience with it. “They don’t get that experience elsewhere and the customers love the validation that the chef gives to the performance of the products,” Sandy says. She believes that having a chef in the showroom is an indispensable part of the showroom experience.
“One thing that I hope each client understands,” Sandy says, “is that when they walk through the front door, they are welcome to the Clarke family.” Sandy wants every customer to feel comfortable, secure and confident that we have their best interest.
When Sandy isn’t in the showroom, her favorite things to do are spend time with her four grandchildren, enjoy the dunes of outer Cape Cod and bake, sew and knit for other people. She loves to be able to provide for others, which is why the annual fundraiser and gala for the Nativity School of Worcester is near and dear to her heart. In the future, Sandy sees herself continuing to provide support to young kids through volunteer opportunities within her community.
We are so grateful that Sandy is part of our Clarke family! We are extremely proud to recognize all her achievements and the incredibly hard work that she contributes to the business. Thank you, Sandy, for all that you do and congratulations on 20 successful years with us!
