Anna Burton

: How has your college experience influenced your career at IDR?

My college experience shaped my career by showing me the benefits of a career in sales and the confidence to do so. MTSU offered so many experiential learning opportunities to really see and feel what different career paths have to offer. Specifically, taking Personal Selling really sparked my interest in pursuing sales after college and I found out about IDR through Lightning JobSource.

Where can we find you at 9pm on a Friday night?

At home on the couch with a glass of wine (I’m old, married and pretty boring!)

What is the best dish you can cook?

BBQ ribs on my Big Green Egg grill  with a side of corn pudding

Where is the coolest place you’ve traveled?

Costa Rica was amazing. You have the best of all worlds – beaches, amazing resorts, rain forest, and tons of cool animals!

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Slow drivers in the fast lane

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would definitely learn how to sing. In my car I sound like Martina McBride but not so much in front of other people.

Aside from necessities, what is one thing you could not go a day without?

Chapstick and gum

Where is the worst place you could get stuck?

Anywhere freezing cold, stuck in traffic, or completely separated from other people
