The partnership I have with our customers is key and I proud of the relationships we have built. It is rewarding spending time with our associates and teaching them about the business and how to improve and seeing them grow within their position.

We also received the second runner up for Innovation of the Year from Home Depot. I really pride myself on training employees and seeing them achieve their goals and advancement in the company. Two specific endurance events I completed were a 900 mile bike ride for charity and finishing the 2013 Chicago Marathon. I am looking forward to the next accomplishment in the horizon.
Hobbies: Participating in endurance sports such as triathalons and I am currently planning for a three day relay race for charity. I also enjoy traveling to different parts of the world learning the different cultures and meeting the locals. Volunteering is also one of my passions and currently I am focusing on feeding the homeless. Any type of theater or music is also something I enjoy and hope to do more often.
