If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

I chose Maine Course because of the culture. Taking care of people, while keeping it fun and doing it with integrity and respect, is who I am. I’m not just a number that’s easily replaceable. I am part of a family!

On a personal note, I admire my parents because they took care of people everywhere, as well as our family. My family is important to me, and I want to give my children all that my parents gave to us.

Guiding people at work, to take care of each other, is just a byproduct of my upbringing and one I am passionate about. I strive to be a better person for my children, Julia and Valerie. And that same desire extends to my work family as well.
