Women in Automation December Spotlight
Meet Kimberly Barty of Murrelektronik
Kimberly Barty has been in Automation for the past 10 years, having started her journey in Customer Service at Murrelektronik in November 2013 as an Inside Sales Representative. Today, Kimberly has worked her way up to an Account Manager role, proud to be “handling one of my company’s largest accounts”. In her role, Kimberly provides Murrelektronik’s e-commerce customers with both inside and outside support.
When asked about AHTD's Women In Automation, Kimberly said, “It’s so refreshing to see other women speak about their challenges that seem so taboo, such as creating work/life balance." Kimberly is inspired by her children and is motivated to be the best version of herself because of them. Wanting both her career and involvement in her children's school events, Kimberly reports, "I feel so empowered and less guilty for wanting a career that sometimes takes me away from home... WIA has done a great job at building a supportive community along with providing resources to aid in educating us about the latest updates within the automation industry”.
We are thankful to have Kimberly and Murrelektronik as members of AHTD.
