Barbara Martindale, Bookkeeper
Barbara has been with Tradewinds RV since 2003. She handles our accounting and record keeping, and she also serves as our tech support when our phones, internet or computers start acting up. Without her here, we would be lost. She is the root, behind the scenes, that keeps Tradewinds RV in operation.
Lula Sheets, Receptionist
Lula has been part of our family since 2004. You can find her at our front desk in the sales office. Without Lula, Tradewinds RV wouldn't be able to operate. She handles phone calls, pictures, website info, inventory and greets every customer that walks through our door with a heart warming smile. It would be easier to list the duties that she doesn't handle. She is literally the heart and soul of the sales department.
Momma Cat, Morale Manager
Momma Cat has been with Tradewinds RV for over 5 years and has mothered 3 sets of litters. She is responsible for moral support and squirrel maintenance!! Without Momma Cat here to protect us and raise moral we would be over run by the squirrels!
