SSN: Describe your roles, duties, and tenure at your current job. 

40 under 40DOTTERMAN: I have had the pleasure of working at UCC for 16 years. I really feel like I grew up here. I started as a dispatcher and really enjoyed the job. I was able to move up and supervise that department, which also helped me grow even further. It was challenging but I really loved helping my team and helping take care of our customers.

After several years in each of those positions I was given the chance to supervise the data entry department and I quickly agreed! It was so exciting learning about a completely different area of our company. I had to learn data entry, as well as how to manage the team all at once. I loved the challenge and that feeling has never changed,  though my knowledge and confidence level definitely did. I make sure my team is working accurately and efficiently with new account setup, cancellation, cell unit programming, deactivations, and new dealer transfers. We are constantly learning because the industry is always moving forward.
