Tell us a little about your business.
Levrack is the ultimate shop and garage storage system. It has the ability to double and even triple your space. Levrack utilizes a clean, durable, and efficient design to keep your workspace looking professional and in order. Our product is entirely free standing and designed to integrate into pallet racking. It is especially great for inventory management.
How did you get started in the business?
Levrack’s product was originally invented on a farm so that was the first thing that appealed to me since I grew up on a family farm operation as well. I quickly realized that Levrack’s founders, A.J. and Ryan, have an awesome business model with so many attributes needed to run a successful business. I was really drawn to Levrack’s idea because it provided an opportunity to work with a start up while simultaneously helping other businesses. I joined the team as a sales associate in March of this year and haven’t looked back since.
Tell us a little about your family.
I have two siblings, an older sister and an older brother. They have given me four nieces and a nephew that I absolutely adore. The rest of my family is spread out all across Nebraska and Kansas. Supporting each other and spending time together are our favorite things to do!
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Any type of activity outside; I love being outdoors.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
Surprisingly, I enjoy surfing. Even though I live in land-locked Nebraska, I own a surfboard and always pay attention to the world of surfing from afar.
Who inspires you?
That’s easy, my family. I didn’t get to choose them but I ended up getting very, very lucky.
