My most amazing travel experience: I’ve had the good fortune to have amazing travel experiences throughout my career. Thus far the highlight has been to experience the city of Dubai.
What it means to me to be an employee-owner: Being an employee-owner to me instills a sense of commitment and passion. As employee-owners we have a vested interest to go above and beyond, and that truly makes a difference at every level of our organization. It creates a family atmosphere where we work hard and play hard.
Philanthropic organizations I am involved in: I work with several local organizations that benefit the Food Bank, Friendship Home and various Catholic charities.Back to executive team
