Describe your role at OlympiaTech in 10 words or less.
I provide the field with the direction and workforce needed to be the most productive. I need more than 10 words.. That’s only one hat that I wear!

How long have you been working at OlympiaTech?
17 years

How long have you worked in the electrical/construction industry? How did you get started in the industry?
I graduated from Dunwoody in 1984 and I’ve been working in the industry consistently since May of 1984, so 34 years!

What are three words to describe working at OlympiaTech?
Organized chaos! No two days are ever the same which makes it fun.

What is your favorite part about working for OlympiaTech?
It’s very family-oriented. We have the capabilities to handle large, complicated projects with the personal service you’d expect from your local electrician.

What has been your favorite project at OlympiaTech?
The Spring Point Project’s research facility back in 2008-2009 when I was still working in the field. The biosecure facility is used for diabetes research – which is a worthy cause! It was a design-build project that offered lots of challenges to work through.

What’s one tool/resource/app you couldn’t live without?
When I was in the field it was my linesman pliers. Now that I work between the office and the field, it’s my mobile phone (unfortunately).

What’s one thing your co-workers and colleagues don’t know about you?
When I’m not working, I enjoy being a hockey referee.
