President Van Miller’s Personal Assistant (aka Office Manager)
“A gift from God.” That’s the way D&B President Van Miller describes Cris, who is responsible for payroll, invoicing, credit checks and more. She’s also the company’s front-office queen problem solver, picking up whatever needs to be done and doing it—or finding someone who can.
Cris also loves making her coworkers and customers laugh, whether by changing costumes eight times on Halloween or arriving at work wearing a silly headband with elf ears. She also likes taking care of others. At work, she orchestrates office pot lucks and “welcome to the team” parties. At home, she crochets. Last year, she made scarfs for 35 kids in need, and this year she’s making 40 blankets for a crisis nursery.
Prior to joining D&B, Cris enjoyed 30 years in the jewelry business. She’s married to Jeff. They have a daughter and three grandchildren they adore.
