If you could roll back time, what moment would you revisit to experience again or to change? I would go back to my college years and go further with my studies. Education is much harder to obtain later in life and knowledge is one of those things you can’t have enough of.
How can the Triad better retain young professionals? Communicating with younger employees about how they fit into the company’s current and long-range plans could contribute significantly to overall productivity and provide constructive criticism and career advice.
Most meaningful volunteer activity? Being apart of the Swepsonville Fire Department allows me to serve my community and help others in times of need.
I am passionate about… helping others. Kindness is an investment that always pays back dividends.
