Tell us about yourself and your family.

I’m a wife and Mom of three boys, ages 25, 20 and 17. They have kept me very busy.  I work full time, and when I do have free time I enjoy family, walking, biking or reading to relax.


Where do you work?

I work for Arrow, a Technology Company. We are known for being an innovator in the distribution market place.


What sets your company apart from the rest?

We are a technology company, working closely with our customer base to help them be innovative; we are looking to help them develop the next generation of products. Not the one coming out next year but we are thinking about five years from now.


What led you to getting a Samsung phone?2016-6-4 Burkinshaw, Suzanne32037 as Smart Object-1 copy

We had to choose from the IPhone or Samsung. I worked with the Blackberry for years and I felt that the Samsung was the better of the products; it has a much better user interface. The email on Samsung is great, and since I am so busy I tend to use email on the road a lot. I also like the camera- it takes great pictures.

Which one do you have?

Samsung Galaxy S6


What role does your Galaxy phone play at your work?

It is a big part of my day, and I would be lost without it. I travel, visiting clients most of the day, so it keeps me connected. I also follow my suppliers and customers on twitter, so I am getting up-to-date information.


What are your 3 favorite features of your Galaxy?

Email, texting and phone.


What are your top 3 favorite apps?

Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn


If you could design an app for the future, what would you make?

A security app that would help our future generations with how much data they should share on the phones.


What do you think is the best invention (so far) in your lifetime?

I am not sure it is the best invention, but I think the smart phone has changed our culture, mostly for the better. We still need to have a balance in our life, and I worry about the next generation and the generation after; sometimes too much technology is not good. We need to come up with better security features.
