My responsibilities at Lanham Hardwood Flooring include greeting and assisting everyone that walks in that walks in our door, answering the phone when it rings, and helping to put stock away when it arrives.

Before working here, I never would have thought there was so much that goes into the process of making a beautiful hardwood floor.
Something interesting about me? Halloween its my favorite holiday. I love it, and can’t get enough of it. Sometimes, I call myself the pumpkin whisperer because every year I pick pumpkins that last for months after Halloween is over. It takes me 2 days just to get all of my Halloween decorations out! And, every year, I never fail to dress up for all the trick-or-treaters who come by my house.
