What's a motto or personal mantra/words you strive to live by?

"Discipline is the bridge between your goals and accomplishment." - Jim Rohn

What advice do you have for someone just starting out their career?

Try new things. Don’t be afraid of change. Find what you are good at and throw everything you have into it.

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in your time with the company?

I’ve learned so many new and valuable skills with this company that most schools will simply not teach you.

What do you like best about working for the company?

I love working with so many people that are dedicated to their job and this company. I’m also so thankful for everything this company has given me. I was hired straight out of college with $1,000 to my name and I’m certain I had no idea how far I would come in 5 years. I have to attribute that to this company giving me all the opportunities in the world to challenge myself to improve.
