Meet our featured employee of the month, Carrie King!

Yakima, WA – Borton & Sons, Inc. is very thankful for the commitments we have from our long term key employees.  Carrie King has been such a large asset to our team and we’d like to recognize her for the month of July.

Carrie grew up here in the Yakima Valley, raised in the Ahtanum/Wiley City area.  She attended Ahtanum Elementary as well as West Valley’s Jr. High and High School, graduating in 1983.  “I started working when I was 16, picking apples for Hull Ranches, then moved to sorting and packing apples for Lennington Orchards,” stated Carrie.  After graduation, she went into the customer service field as a waitress until her oldest daughter was born and she decided to be a stay at home mom for roughly 5 years.  “After going back to work I worked in a wide variety of office settings going from being an office manager for a construction company to DOT safety director for a large trucking company,” she went onto say.

Carrie came to work for Borton Fruit in November of 2002, making this her 13th year with our company.  “I started as a receptionist and then became the data entry clerk for daily pack-outs while transitioning into my current position which includes a multitude of tasks including invoicing and receiving in processor sales, licensing duties for the cars, trucks, semis and trailers for Borton” Carrie said.  Carrie also handles property management for both, Borton & Sons Inc. as well as Two Bluffs LLC., another Borton Entity.

Outside of work, Carrie enjoys spending time with her family which consists of her 27 year old newlywed daughter Christina, her son-in-law Jerod, and her 11 year old daughter Katy.  She also has 2 dogs, 1 cat and 4 chickens.  “We enjoy going to rodeos, camping, outside activities, and football (Go Hawks)!!  I love spending time with my family and friends,” Carrie said.  Carrie has also bowled on the annual Borton bowling team for the last 8 years.

Thank You for all you do Carrie.  We appreciate your efforts and are very lucky to have you as part of our team here.
