What was your first job? Pizza Hut server.

Are you active on social media? If so, which platforms are you most active? Yes. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and LinkedIn.

What time do you get up on workday mornings? Whenever my son wakes up, usually between 5:30 and 6:30 a.m.

What is your favorite thing to do when you are not working? I love live music. So, one of my favorite things is going to shows and meeting people with a shared passion for great music.

What’s something interesting about you that people would be surprised to learn? Even though I am risk-averse and not a huge fan of the outdoors, I have been whitewater rafting in Colorado twice.

What is the next big personal or career challenge you plan to take on? We have lots of great things on the horizon. A new Benton County location, new software system, and new products and services for customers.
