Name: Leah Turner
Location: La Crosse, WI
What is your current role at Inland? Have you held other roles prior to your current position?
I am currently the Customer Onboarding and Transition Specialist. Prior to this role, I was a Sales Account Specialist for a year and then took on this new opportunity. 
What impact does your role have on our customers?
My role impacts our customers in several ways. For many businesses, transitions are a daunting task. When new business is brought to Inland, Natasha and I are responsible for ensuring their experience is top notch and that we align our internal teams to give them the best product and service right away. We aim to provide a seamless transition that exceeds the customers' expectations. 
What aspects of your job do customers see?
My position is very customer facing. I am always working with customers and communicating what stage of the transition we are at, so they are in the loop every step of the way. 
How does your role impact our products?
Although I don't print or finish the labels that go out the door, my role still has an impact. By bringing our departments together internally to produce our customers' products, I ensure our customers are getting the best quality product from the very first order.
What is your favorite product that Inland produces and why?
That's a tough one, we make some really cool labels! My favorite products we produce are the Three Floyds Brewing labels. Even though I am not a beer drinker, they are very creative and use the metalized paper to make their labels unique and truly beautiful! We have a lot of fun craft brewery customers, and seeing their designs come to life on our presses is an exciting part of the job. 
What are you currently binge watching on Netflix?
Schitt's Creek like everyone else! I find myself all too often relating to David and his overly dramatic ways. 
Before working at Inland, what was the most unusual or interesting job you've ever had?
I worked at Petco when I was 17 and washed dogs. Definitely not a career I wanted for long!
Where can we find you outside of work?
I love being outside. Hiking, kayaking, sitting on the balcony listening to music. Literally anything outdoors! If the weather isn't so great, you'll most likely find me at my second home, Target!
What's one thing you can't live without?
My adorable pitbull Lucy :)
