My time at the Company is special because I love being able to meet my customer’s needs and get to know them. I build a relationship with my customers and I enjoy being able to help them.

Who do you think has had the largest influence on the person you are today?

The person that has had the largest influence on the person I am today would be my grandmother. She was a hardworking woman that achieved great things in life, even with the odds against her. She taught me that as long as I am honorable, hardworking, respectful, and humble, I will always succeed. She let me know that the road may not always be smooth, but as long as I persevere it will be worth it.
