Formal title at Taber

Finance Coordinator

Job duties & responsibilities

My formal title does not begin to cover the list of duties that over the years have become my responsibilities. My involvement ranges from accounting to purchasing to IT; from monthly inventory reporting to customer invoicing to payroll to being the Gulfport office hands for the IT department that is managed from Russellville. All of these duties and more, but we know the most important is making sure there is coffee supplies on hand at all times and the petty cash box has money in it.

Where did you work prior to Taber; same industry or something totally different?

Prior to coming to Taber in 2005 I worked with my family in our privately owned Christian bookstores.

I worked in the retail world for 20+ years so manufacturing is a totally different environment.

What do you hope to bring to Taber in terms of leadership and company culture?

In terms of leadership and company culture I think the best thing an employer can do for their employees is to have an atmosphere that recognizes the importance of family and personal health. Some things can only be dealt with during business hours. I want to be understanding of the demands that are on us be it self, spouse, children, grandchildren or aging parents.

When you’re not at work, what would we find you doing?

Family is very important to me so spending time with them is something I enjoy and it usually involves eating which is good because I enjoy cooking. But when quiet times can be found I really like to read.


I was born in Cumberland, MD but my father’s job took us all around the world, so we moved frequently. Our last move was in 1975 and it brought us to Ocean Springs, MS where after going to 8 schools in 12 years I graduated from Ocean Springs High School. I can honestly say that even though I wasn’t born here Ocean Springs, MS is definitely my ‘hometown’.

Family, children?

My husband John and I will celebrate our 41st anniversary in June. During those years we had 2 sons, both of whom are married to wonderful women and are building families of their own. We have 3 grandchildren with another on the way in August 2021.

Favorite part about working for Taber so far?

The people. Most of the people I work with were here when I came here 16 years ago. There is so little turn over in the management. Going to work everyday is like going to see friends – and that’s nice.

What do you think the future holds for Taber?

Who really knows what the future holds but I think the past is a good indicator of what our future will be. Business always cycles having ups and downs in the economy to deal with but the history of National Material and Taber in particular shows that our owners have confidence in Taber and our ability to compete in the marketplace. That gives us a positive outlook on the future.

More About Taber Extrusions: 

Founded in 1973, Taber Extrusions originally pioneered a process for extruding rectangular billet which enables the company to extrude solid profiles up to 31 inches wide or hollows up to 29 inches. Taber expanded with the purchase of an extrusion facility in Gulfport, MS, in 1995 which houses a new state-of-the-art cast house and two additional presses, microextrusion capabilities, and the fabrication area has been expanded multiple times.

Taber continues to extrude billet in a wide range of alloys and sizes and has diversified its markets beyond military since its inception to include aerospace, automotive, marine, infrastructure, and sporting goods, among many others. For these markets, the company supplies cast and extruded products in a variety of soft and hard alloys.

Today, Taber Extrusions has completed the addition of in-house friction stir welding capabilities, and carries on their offering of extruded aluminum components, value-added machining services, and raw material supply to the North American market – making them a vertically integrated supplier of FSW panels and assemblies never before seen in North America.

    Your formal title at Taber  

    Human Resources Manager

    Your job duties & responsibilities 

    At Taber, we have an HR Department of 1, so I am responsible for everything from recruiting, hiring, on-boarding to terminations, and everything in between!  As a part of the leadership team, I am challenged to encourage reduced turnover, employee engagement, and culture of continuous learning and development.

    How long have you been at Taber? 

    I started at Taber on 6/23/2015 as the Accounting Specialist, then in January of 2016 I became the HR Manager; so going on 4 years now.

    Where did you work prior to Taber; was it in the same industry or something totally different? 

    This is my first time to work in the manufacturing industry; my past experience has been at Financial Institutions and Government, such as State and Borough, which is definitely entirely different!

    When you’re not at work, what would we find you doing?

    When not working, and if I’m not with my family, you would find me either shopping or traveling – those are my 2 favorite things, and when I can combine the 2 – even better!


    I was born in Ft. Smith, AR, but left there with my family when I was just 5 to move to British Columbia.  We returned to Arkansas when I was 14.  Throughout most of my married life, I have lived in Alaska

    Family, children? 

     I’ve been married to my husband for 31 years, we have three children, each married and between them I am “Noni” 8 grandchildren all under the age of 5!  My family is my life!  I love being with them.  It is especially high energy when we are all together, which happens nearly every Sunday.

    What would “your perfect day” consist of? 

    A perfect day for me really varies, but it should always include sunshine and either a beach or swimming pool!

    What’s your favorite part about working for Taber so far? 

    At Taber, I am surrounded by team full of smart, innovative people who challenge me to learn more and continually improve.  This is a fascinating world with new challenges and victories every day.  I am never bored at Taber!

    What sets Taber apart from other companies that deliver the exact same things?

    As I mentioned earlier, this is my first time in this industry, so I am not too familiar with other companies that produce the exact same thing, but I do know that there are few that have as broad of capabilities that we do here at Taber.  I believe that what sets us apart is our family-like culture, we all care for and support each other as family.

    What do you hope to bring to Taber in terms of leadership and company culture?

    Everyday I strive to bring a positive attitude, a smile, and an uplifting conversation regardless of what is going on.  I always hope that whether someone is having a rough day at work, or maybe they are having to deal with issues at home, or even if everything is all good when they encounter me, it is a bright spot in their day. I strive to set the tone for a positive culture, free of drama and hope that the example I set inspires growth.

    If you weren’t working for Taber, what job would you probably have? 

    I can’t think of another place I’d rather be right now, but I must say that before I came to Taber, I never thought I would work in any manufacturing-type industry.  I have enjoyed my growth throughout my journey from one position to the next, and I have found that here at Taber each day greets me with new challenge!

    Taber is growing rapidly. Any advice for those looking to join the Taber team?

    Taber is growing rapidly, and my advice for anyone looking to join our team is you should come on with an open mind to change, a willingness and a commitment to be a part of a solution and improvement, take pride in your work, it’s a very important piece of the big picture.

    What do you think the future holds for Taber?

    As it is stated – the sky is the limit!  Our leadership is constantly looking for ways to grow and expand, so who knows exactly what is on our horizon!  But, you can be sure that whatever it is will be forward moving, ever evolving and growing with plenty of opportunity for the right talent!

    I hope I bring a trust and integrity to the team and the customer base, I feel these are the most important factors in building great relationships internally and with our customer base.

    If you weren’t working for Taber, what job would you probably have?

    This would be a tough question to answer, I have been in the extrusion industry for more than half my life. I do love working on my classic automobiles so if I had unlimited funds most likely restoring classic cars.

    I feel like we are making good investments as a company and hope to see continued growth as we continue to expand our capabilities.
