What attracted you to GROUP? I didn’t really know much about the company when I first came on board, but I quickly learned that this company is like a family that would support my growth. I can definitely see a strong and long-term future here at GROUP Industries!

What excites you most about your role with GROUP? As a Site Safety Manager, I have the opportunity to affect real change. I take pride in the fact that I am able to prevent any possible hazards or injuries to members of our workforce.

What’s the best piece of advice you ever received? “Always be part of the solution and never a part of the problem.”

When not working, how do you like to spend your time? I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two daughters and one son. My son is currently serving in Afghanistan as a crew chief for the Black Hawk helicopter. It’s nice when I’m able to video chat with him. Fortunately, my daughters are both much closer to home so we spend our days away from work at the spa or enjoying some much-needed retail therapy!
