What year did you start working for ELS?
I started on April 30th, 2018, which happens to be National Honesty Day, National Raisin Day, and International Jazz Day… I’ll pass on the raisins.
What is something about yourself that might surprise others?
I have a gap between my big toe and the one next to it that makes it really hard for me to wear flip flops. Seriously, there’s room for another full toe.
What do you like most about working at ELS?
Most certainly being able to work outside at some beautiful places! Unless they have hornet nests… I don’t like those places.
What is a fear you are proud to have overcome?
Heights. I’m still not a fan, but there’s nothing quite like bungee jumping.
If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
Linus Pauling. Anyone who has won two Nobel Prizes could teach this world quite a lot. OR, Ernest Hemmingway. Any man who decided to hunt Nazi U-Boats from his own fishing boat with machine guns and hand grenades sure has some stories to tell!
