When time allows I like to hop on a plane and explore new places.”
What is your favorite work memory?
“That is so hard to narrow down because I have had the opportunity to be involved in so many great events. If I had to pick just one I would have to say the first time I experienced the Great Charity Challenge. I knew in that moment I was working for a company that cared about its community and was making an incredible impact on those in the local area. As someone who has always loved community service and giving back, the Great Charity Challenge has always had a special place in my heart.”
