Fun Facts

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to work with my Dad I his Pest Control business. I wasn’t that I loved to Pest Control work at first, it was more about working with someone that I loved and looked up to. It was actually a very good decision, working with someone that cared about me and wanted to help me succeed in life.

What is your favorite trip and why?

Taking my kids camping for the first time. It was a great family trip and I was amazed at how much my daughter and son enjoyed the whole experience. Everything from setting up the campsite, cooking and eating out doors, going for hikes, hanging out around the fire, they rarely complained and I think it even appreciated each other a little more.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work; I enjoy playing golf, boating, downhill skiing, traveling and most of all, hanging out with my four grandsons. They range in age from five to nine years old, and they are happy, fun, sweet boys with ton’s of energy.
