Making Connections in the Pump Industry

Much like pumps can run in parallel operation, people’s lives also run parallel. And isn’t it always funny when you discover how you are connected to others? I never would have guessed as a young lady that I would develop great relationships that would lead me to a satisfying career within the pump industry. Even more surprising, I wouldn’t have guessed that one of my high-school friends would eventually become a Pumper. Believe it or not, I have country roots. Though I was born in Millington, Tennessee, just outside of Memphis, I grew up in the small country town of Moundville, Alabama. While in high school, I met a boy by the name of Brad Sellers, who has grown up to become not just a Pumper for Walter Energy Company, but who has also become a very talented guitar-player and country music performer. True to Empowering Pumps’ spirit of connecting people in the pump industry, I am excited to announce that my childhood friend, turned Pumper, will be playing his guitar at an exclusive event that I am organizing during the WEFTEC2014 Conference and Exhibition. Hosted in New Orleans, this event is all about showing appreciation to Empowering Pumps’ Sponsors. Co-sponsored by the Hydraulic Institute, Dynamatic, Chesterton, and LeadMethod, our customers will be treated to a full bar, New Orleans style gumbo, and tender vittles from a pork carving station; and all the while, Brad will be pumping out some rockin tunes on his guitar!

Let me know if you will be in town and I’ll send you an invitation to this event!  Come to WEFTEC ready to make new connections in the pump industry.
