Just for Fun

What is one of your biggest accomplishments? Finding a nice balance between my work and home life has been great for me. It allows me to regularly volunteer in the community I grew up in and give back.

What motivates you at work? My coworkers motivate me at work. Operations as a whole is full of individuals who come together to do great work and have a good time doing it.

What advice do you have for those who are new to City Light? Find that balance between your home life and work; don’t sacrifice too much time with your family. Also, try and learn something new daily. If you do that over the course of a few years you’ll be better off for it!

What is your go-to karaoke song? I can’t really narrow it down to a single song, but I can say if you play anything by Journey, I won’t stay quiet.

Who do you admire the most? This is going to sounds cheesy, but probably my parents. They raised me well and taught me how to be the best I can be, both in and out of work. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.
