How did you get started as a process server?
[At the time,] I was a Mom of a 3-year-old and 1-year-old. I had stopped working to stay home with them. I found myself itching to do something outside of the house, but didn't want a set schedule. I happened upon an ad looking for a process server and I thought, "What the heck, I'll send my resume". The rest is history.
What training and/or support have you received from ABC Legal?
I was trained by Scott A. who took me out [on serves] quite a few times until I felt comfortable on my own. Laurice A. is our dispatcher and she is amazing and so supportive! I always feel like I can reach out to her if I have any questions or issues in the field.
What is your favorite part of the job?
The flexibility and working by myself.
What is your Least favorite part of the job?
I don't love bringing bad news to people and sometimes feel bad doing it.

I keep dog mace on me.
What is your favorite serving story?
I was serving someone in an RV park. […] They told me they barely had enough money for their electric bill. They said they had been sending money to a guy, who was clearly scamming them, and they had lost multiple thousands of dollars. They told me they didn't even have money for groceries. I told them to stop giving that person money and they was being scammed. I left and came back with $100 worth of groceries. To this day, I still wonder what happened next for them.
Tell us something about you that not many people know.
I have rode a camel in India with the Taj Mahal right behind me.
