As one of the youngest members of the team, I bring a fresh perspective and attitude; mostly awe and wonder and a whole lot of joy. I occasionally attend our company-wide meetings where I like to voice my opinion spontaneously to, you know, make sure that people stay engaged. I'm looking forward to the day I get more mobile so that I can keep up with the other AVB kiddos when we are in the office; although now that they have those scooters for the warehouse, it may be a while!

According to my LinkedIn profile my primary responsibility is to manage the direction of the company and engage the heads & hearts of our team.

When you walk into the office you tell everyone “Good morning” and before you leave you tell everyone “Goodbye”. It really makes a difference in just how good you feel after seeing all of your friends and greeting them. That’s what makes us feel like family, everyone is there to support and encourage you.

My husband, Wayne, and I along with our daughter, Shannon and son, Corey own All Volleyball.

Wayne and I stay involved in the vision and mission of the company and have entrusted the leadership, growth, decision making and operations to our very competent children and staff. What I hope that I do now is inspire, encourage, and support the people who work here by providing them with the tools and freedom to pursue their personal and professional ambitions.

The very best thing about working here is that I get to spend my days with my husband, children and grandchildren.

Besides seeing and spending time with family, I have the pleasure of working with my AVB family that consist of some of the most loving, intelligent, friendly, fun loving and hardworking people I know and have surely grown to love. As time goes by I've come to realize and appreciate the amazing opportunity that I have every day to witness my faith in God and am seeing that He is guiding me, my family, and co-workers to reach out to each other, our customers, and our community in praise and service to one another and Him through this place we call work.

I work to continue to establish the All Volleyball brand and lead the brand efforts in our new initiatives.

Each day brings an exciting, new challenge.

What is the best thing about working here?

The people, hands-down. My husband, my in-laws and the "AVB family" are all inspiring to me. I feel very blessed that my days in the office may consist of getting to talk strategy with my husband, see my family members and do work alongside some truly great people. I bring the boys into the office when the occasion calls for it as not only is it fun for them to see family, but their interactions with the team are great learning experiences. I also like for them to see 'what else mommy and daddy do." Now, if you ask me this same question at 3'o'clock in the afternoon, some days, I'd have to say that, my stand-up desk and a cup of coffee from the kitchen are the best things about working here. Hands-down.

I work in the Team Sales Department here at All Volleyball. My job consists of helping coaches, parents, athletic directors, etc. through the process of ordering team apparel from start to finish. My job is to make the process as easy as I possibly can for the customer so that I can alleviate just a little of the stress of ordering apparel.

In addition, I oversee our social media team. I work with a fantastic group of people who brainstorm and come up with endless ideas to create fun and creative ways for our followers and fans to continue to have entertaining encounters on our social media sites. I myself run Twitter and enjoy keeping up to date with the volleyball world and interacting with customers who have positive experiences with our company and brand.

Like most of the staff at All Volleyball, I wear many hats, but most of my time is keeping an eye on our bottom line. As the bookkeeper, I am responsible for paying the bills, collecting on purchase orders, processing payroll, and many other things. I also work on our social media team, managing our Facebook page. When I am not doing any of that, I also work as a manager, in customer service, as well as handle some order processing. And with all of that, I truly love what I do.

What is the best thing about working here?

There are many “best things” about working at All Volleyball. But, if I have to narrow down and pick one thing, it would have to be the owners. They are truly the best! They are the most loving, caring, thoughtful human beings I know. I started here right out of high school and worked all through college. Once I graduated I was offered a full time position! I have gone through many milestones while working here like getting married and having a baby. There is no blood relation but my daughter is their granddaughter. I have the benefit of bringing her to work almost every Friday of the year. And every time she is here, they spend as much of their day as possible with her. I am so blessed that my family can be a part of theirs.

What do you do here?

My main responsibility is taking care of our retail store with Laura. On a daily basis, I work with customers, both in store and on the phone, helping them with all of their volleyball needs.

You may even recognize me in some of our videos and product images!

What is the best thing about working here?

One of the best things about working here is that every day is different. Since we’re a small company, we are constantly working on projects and thinking of new things we can do to help our company grow. One minute we may be working on a video project, and the next we’re planning a huge event for our retail store. You never know what’s going to happen next at All Volleyball and it’s really exciting! Of course, the people I work with every day are pretty awesome too. I couldn't imagine a better group of people to call my work family!

What is your name?

Shannon

What do you do here?

I work in the team sales division, primarily in the warehouse, coordinating team orders once they are placed with one of our team sales reps. I receive shipments of team apparel, verifying the products are correct, and then transport the apparel/equipment to the right locations within our facility (ex. Place jerseys in the printing department for personalization). Once all of the apparel for the team order has arrived and the personalization is complete, I package all of the items on the order and ship it to the customer. I also assist with odd jobs and projects around the office as necessary.

What is the best thing about working here?

The best part about working here is definitely the atmosphere and the staff. We all work so hard, but have fun at the same time, which I believe is hard to find in most work environments nowadays. Everyone cares about each other and that shows in our daily interactions—both work related and on a personal level. I consider myself truly blessed every single day to be able to walk through the doors at All Volleyball and put in a hard day’s work alongside such an amazing group of friends and family (literally).

Shannon
What is your name?

Shannon

What do you do here?

I dabble in a little bit of everything – some days I am a shipper/receiver, some days I work in retail, some days I am a product developer/designer, some days I am human resources, and some days I am a buyer. But the biggest role I play at All Volleyball is being the self-described “Glue.” Not in the sense of holding the place together, but more like bringing the place together. As we have grown and added more people each year, it is very important to me that we retain that small, close knit family atmosphere. That is why it is always my main focus to make sure that each area of the business works fluently with each other just like we did when it was just the 5 of us back in the beginning.

What is the best thing about working here?

Simply stated – the people. I am truly blessed that I get to spend every day with my real family, my parents (Kriss and Wayne) and my brother (Corey), BUT that I have the opportunity to work so closely with the other people in the company who have become my family – not just my “work” family, but my true family. We all laugh together and when things are tough we cry together. The people that work here are the most caring, dedicated, loyal group that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Every day when I walk in these doors I feel extremely loved and cared for and know that no matter what the day brings my way I have my FAMILY to lean on…and there is no better feeling than that!
