Our focus on learning and growth for all employees, service to our community, and sustainability. These are all values that I hold personally.

When you have an hour of free time, what is your favorite way to pass the time?

I love to run and make time to put on my running shoes and get outside several days a week. So far I’ve run one marathon and several half-marathons.The feeling of setting a goal that seems impossible and working toward it week-by-week until I achieve it is awesome. Even if it’s just a 30 minute or one hour run, I know I’m working toward my goal. Through running I’ve learned a lot about what I’m capable of accomplishing and I’m no longer afraid to dream bigger and push for one more mile.
