When did you start working at GSA? My career with GSA began in March 2022.
What did you study in college? Physics! From the beginning, there was a junior-level course offered for optics and lasers that I really wanted to take, but it was only available to physics majors. It took some effort on my part to stay the course, but I found the classes to be fascinating. Once you're in that deep and enjoying it, why change majors?
Where did you work before GSA? Prior to working with GSA, I worked at Home Depot as a Flooring Specialist for several years. My role included helping customers both on their flooring projects through the company and in the aisles.
What are your hobbies outside of work? I have a passion for cooking and golfing. Though, golfing for me has fallen by the wayside. Traveling is also something I enjoy doing, especially with my family. I have seen the Eiffel Tower at night, backpacked Glacier National Park, and scuba dove in Mexico (highly recommend all of them). Not sure what other wonders I will see next, but I can't wait!
What do you like about working at the DFC and GSA? The people are exceptional. I had a brief summer internship with GSA in 2017 at the field office in Helena, MT and fell in love with the workplace culture that Region 8 works so diligently to maintain. We are a community that puts every effort forward to create a space that every voice is not only heard, but also considered important. That same mindset is put forward across the DFC community on a minute-to-minute scale no matter what team you are on. I think that is something that is extremely unique and worth taking pride in.
