If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
I would have dinner with my Great Grandma so I could let her win at Skip-Bo one last time.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
When you see really scary spiders in your personal space and then they disappear and you can’t sleep because you’re waiting for the murderous spider of death of jump out at any moment.
What do you like most about working at ELS?
Not having to work with sewer lines anymore LOL. But really, it’s a great work environment, I love the people, it feels like family; I love getting a combination of office and field work, I love that people are actually willing work as a team. I feel like Ben from Parks and Recreation with the accounting firm, people like me here!
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
The best super power I can think of is the ability to never sleep! I would get so much done!
What is something about yourself that might surprise others?
I can tie balloon animals like a pro! I’ve also been to 36 of the 50 states! I once drove across the county (the long way) by myself in 4 days.
