Billerica, MA – The Dodge Company is pleased to announce the addition of Tawnia Steinhoff and Kris Hilton to its dedicated team of sales representatives. If their time spent in Billerica in August is any indication, both are on track to provide excellent service to the funeral service professionals in their respective territories.
Tawnia succeeds Grant Robinson, in a territory which includes north and western Iowa, Nebraska, middle North Dakota and eastern South Dakota. She attended Kansas City Community College, graduating in 2001 with an Associate in Arts Degree in Applied Science – Mortuary Science. Tawnia became licensed as a funeral service practitioner in 2002. Prior to being employed as an embalmer and technical adviser for the Iowa Donor Network for three years, she spent seven years with Bertrand Funeral Homes of Knoxville and Pleasantville as an embalmer and funeral director.
On a personal note, Tawnia grew up on a farm, what she describes as a cow/calf operation in a small northwestern Iowa town. She enjoys spending time with friends, traveling, gardening, helping on the family farm and her horse Diablo.
Kris Hilton has taken over the territory previously served by Fred K. Gifford, III. Kris’ territory includes Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, central and northern Massachusetts and east central New York.
Kris is originally from Webster, Massachusetts, but has lived in Worcester for many years. Professionally, Kris is a Massachusetts licensed funeral director and embalmer. In recent years, Kris has been employed by O’Connor Brothers Funeral Home in Worcester.
When not working, Kris enjoys trying different kinds of foods and traveling. He has a Boston Terrier named Elmo who you may see accompanying Kris on his travels.
Tim Collison, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said “Tawnia and Kris are excellent additions to the Dodge sales representative team. Both individuals combine high technical skills with a customer service mindset, which is the foundation for Dodge representatives and a pillar of the Dodge Company.”
